Default exhaust leak at Crossover?

2011 GT has developed an exhaust leak @ 50k miles at the "flex pipe" at the X-pipe junction. Any suggestions for how to repair?

Whats up Blu, how ironic is that. I made a tread right below yours, my h-pipe did the same thing. Cracked right in the seams of that accordian part of the pipe. I dunno if you can get it welded. I went and replaced mine with a BBK x-pipe.

I'll check a few more websites, but will probably see about getting the accordian section welded...or cut out and replaced with a solid piece of pipe. Looking at the different aftermarket set-ups, none use an the accordian flex pipe.
