Default exhaust rattle

I have a JBA dual exhaust kit that is a "bolt on" kit (meaning it isnt welded and the joints are simply slipped together with clamps holding them together).

Anyways, each morning for the past 6 years, while the car is cold, i get a buzzing sound coming from one of the clamps that isnt quite tight enough. I tried tightening it several times, but its to the point that I will break the clamp it i torque it any tighter.

Question, do they sell something to put between these slip-type joints on exhaust to reduce this type of thing?

I had the same problem with my flowmaster time it went away i guess the pipe swelled up and stopped rattleing you could cut a bigger pipe and sleave it and then tighten the clamps also

There is some material that is made for this...
It's some kind of mesh, it looks like a door screen material that wraps around the inner pipe but you'll need a gap big enough to get it in...

They make exhaust paste...like a puddy you put on ends of the pipes and slip them together. Then clamp them and your set.
