Default stainless exhaust rattle continues - help!

I greatly appreciate the tech info on stainless expansion, but, how did you guys deal with hanging to stop/prevent the rattle? What worked for you? Pix would help.

Any chance it is inside the muffler?? Maybe loose baffles?
Just a thought, seems like hanger isn't the issue..........

Default I used the stainless muffler hanger from Breatton's but

The fabric liner only lasted a few months and the rattle came back. I tried wedging fiberglas around the pipe but that also failed. I am hoping someone has solved this problem and will share.

Some folks use a modern tail pipe rubber insulated hanger (from any parts store) adapted with straps and/or flat metal formed to attach to the frame rail. check other posts. Also in one instance we found an exhaust port ring rattling in the muffler but that doesn't appear to be your issue.
