flowmaster #524553 on the armada?

What up fellas! just wondering the reasons behind the dislike of the flowmaster muffler on our suv? My entire system is stock and i was thinking of replacing the muffler with the flowmaster mentioned, I dont want droan at hwy cruising speeds nor do i want it to be extremely loud, but noticable. this muffler will directly replace the stock muffler with dual 2 1/4" inlets and a single 3" out. I looked into magnaflow but their website didnt come up with anything for the armada, and whats the take on spintech? I never heard one on a vehicle are they really loud? droan or no droan? etc. Any input would be greatly appriciated!

The magnaflow a just perform a little better bc they are a straight through muffler. I personally like the sound of flow masters but went with the magnaflow on my titan and love it. I've got the part numbers for the magnaflow ill just have to find them. As far as the spin tech I'm not sure

I think the firing order on these trucks combined with a flowmaster muffler doesnt sound right. Almost sounds like a hollow can with marbles inside it.

PN 12588 is for the 22". On my titan I put part number 12278 which is the 18". It's a little louder than the 22". But I have no complaints with it and I am normally a flow master guy.

I don't think it's bad. If you are worried about drone I would go with the 22". The 18" I have has a little drone but its definitely bearable and sounds darn good

Ya on mine he had to cut one of the pipes about 18" before the muffler and rotate it bc the spacing between the inlets was less than that of the stock. But it wasn't any problem for the exhaust guy that did mine. And he only chraged me 125 installed. which i thought was pretty good cause the cheapest i had found just the muffler was like 110. And then I just out a JBA tip on it and called it good. And I like it so far.
