Icon5 Exhaust acting Strange

So i have a 02 5 speed Ranger that i took wheeling last weekend and thought that i bent the tail pipe tip up into the bed. So no big deal i thought, i bent it back down to its "home" and all week it has been working its way back up to bed. and after further inspection i found that the pipe in front of the muffler is rusted and spinning in place. So it looks like im getting a new exhaust from the cat back any suggestions?

Muffler bearing ? hmm... could be it twists right infront of the muffler just behind where the two pipes connect.
flowmaster super 44 is that loud b/c im looking for more of a rumble than a pop you know :)
