    as for the steering wheel shaking.....may need to get your tires road force balanced. and no.....putting the flowmaster muffler in didnt void your warranty.

    The good thing is, maybe you won't speed anymore with all the shaking and noises going on.

    A muffler is not going to "void" your warranty. In other words, said aftermarket muffler would have to be proven to have caused whatever failure you might have. For example, if your alternator fails, they can't blame your Flowmaster.
