Default 2000 SSEi Downpipe - Where To Buy?

So the flex joint is gone in my SSEi and it sounds horrible. The new pipe from the dealer is almost $400 which is a bit much I think. Is there anywhere that sells a replacement? I'm not really looking for performance or anything, just something to replace the stock original piece so my car doesn't sound horrible. Where would be the place to get this at? Thanks in advance.

Most muffle shops can get you a new flex pipe and install it for you fairly inexpensively. You don't need to replace the entire down pipe, just the flex pipe.

A exhaust shop is your best bet. Otherwise, Auto Parts Fast at RockAuto had this.

Quoted for truth. Had mine replace at a muffler shop on my old car for roughly 70 bucks (labor and parts).
