engine vibrations/rattle

Ok so I noticed today that I have a rattle/vibration comming from either the engine compartment or under the passenger seat at between 2 to 3k rpm under accelleration only... sounds like either a valve is loose or the exhaust is vibrating from the collectors or from the cats,, it just started out of nowhere and its got me worried... no check engine light or anything lit up on the dash... anyone else have an idea... just had a 3.14 rc lift and 35s put on Monday..

Nice one Codd. Why dont you go have a Crainal Anal Inversion and call me tomorrow?

Thanks to people like you I have job security!

Without having the chance to hear it I'd guess that its exhaust. I've picked up exhaust rattles / shake a couple of times and took it to an exhaust shop to get it fixed. I hope that's it because at least it won't cost much to fix.

What heat shield was broken? Mine is doing it now too, but I think the cracked drivers-side exhaust manifold finally broke.
