Two months ago I needed to replace the muffler on the 09. I purchased the kit from RockAuto, One muffler flange had cracked, the other fell apart taking it apart.

I thought 10 year old car, 175K, and went cheap with the Bosal for 300 vs the Walker for 350. After two months one muffler is very loud and leaking at the seems. In the photo you can see black carbon at every seam. RockAuto is honoring the warranty for a replacement Bosal, under mfg warranty. I tried asking for credit to purchase a Walker.

Anyone have similar Bosal Experience or was this just an isolated bad lot?

Are mufflers designed to have some low point draining?

Bosal sucks.
Yes, mufflers generally have a drain hole.
I just checked and I can't find weep/drain holes in my stock Subaru mufflers. Should I drill 1/8" holes?
