Question about Cars & Trucks
The same problem happened to me all the time back in the day. There is a pipe that runs from the exhaust manifold on the engine down underneath the car, through the catalytic converter, then muffler, then tailpipe. That pipe is welded/bolted together in sections normally, and yours has become separated at one of these joints. If you can jack the car up, follow the pipe from the muffler/catalytic converter forward until just before it curves up toward the engine, this is the spot where this most likely happened. Once you find it, it will jump out at you, there will literally be two pipes touching, one inside the other slightly, but not fully attached anymore. Then go get some exhaust & muffler patch/wrap from an auto parts store, and you will be good to go!

This happened to my 2001 Regal... There is a factory recall on the Catalytic Converter going bad. I had mine replaced with the recall and haven't had a problem since

I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.
