Experiencing Loud Noise Coming From Exhaust Hitting Trailer Hitch, How Do I Fix This


I have this hitch installed on a 2014 Equinox with a V6 engine. The V6 comes with Dual exhaust tips. The passenger side exhaust tip will bang into the part of the drawbar that extends past the mounting plate. It is rather loud and disturbing. It happens mostly when hitting a bump while cornering, but also happens when passenger side hits a large enough bump to swing the exhaust. Do you know of any fix for this issue? Either a high temp rubber bumpstop to put on hitch end or a way to restrict the movement of the exhaust tip. The Chevy dealer said they have no idea what to do. Thanks

Even when a hitch is installed properly we sometimes run into an issue of the exhaust coming into contact with the trailer hitch so we put together an article which provides a few different solutions.

I have attached this article for you.
