Looks like Flowmasters or Flowmaster "wanna be's" mufflers.
Take a quick look under the car, where the exhaust pipe goes over the axle. On your back it will be at the edge of the gas tank towards front of car, next to rear wheel well.
The clearance going over the axle is a quarter inch. If you see the pipe touching anything. That could be it.
