1987 5.0 302 exhaust

I have a nice 1987 5.0 cougar and had a question about exhaust. The Front end is lowered about an inch to give it that mean look (i like it) but i recently ran into a problem. I was driving donwn the road and she was purring nice then she just started ROARING! I ended up splitting the passenger side exhaust pipe (right in front of the rear tire) in half. I havent looked at it too much yet but i think it was just from rust (previous owner) I was wondering what you suggest for exhaust systems on This mean car.

They don't make systems specific to your year Cougar, you either have to have a system custom built, or try a Mustang system, which might be slightly different, requiring some modification.
