Default Need 3" axle back

I'm putting headers on my C5 that dump into a 3" midpipes. Anyone have a clue on a good 3" axle back vendor to mate to my 3" midpipes?

Thanks

do you want mufflers or no mufflers?

Mufflers - LG Motorsports Big 3. Only downside is they proudly price gouge and the exhaust drones like a ****.

No Mufflers - Huron Speed

Kooks are smoking something good if they think an axle back is worth $2100. These companies are crazy!

Here is where Im at on my quest for a full 3 inch exhaust. Picked up the kooks 3 inch midpipe for $100. I ordered a pair of Borla XR1's. I just cut the tub out. Local guy is gonna fab the axleback for me out of 3" stainless. Now i just gotta pick out some new tips.

Call a distributor, chances are they can be bought for way less. I can't fathom spending near that either. They are available with tip options, which is nice.
