Check out my muffler. Is this outer sheet metal wrap with the very lumber banding looking straps stock?? If its not that sure would explain the slight leak... I hope its not stock thats a pretty piss poor design if it is.
(sorry I could not get my images to load right so you will have to cut and paste)
Stock. Given that this poor design has lasted as much as 36 years already (first underhood mufflers in late '76, and I have found them to be in pretty good shape even that old), I bet you peel off the "insulating tin" and you find an easily repairable muffler underneath.

Just Re-crimp any leaking ends, re-wrap and perhaps go another 10-20 years ?
