Default catback connection

my truck exhaust is rusting at the exhaust gasket connection, is there anyway other than welding or replacing the whole thing to fix it? i've tried to find a product online to fix it but i cant find one...it is causing quite a leak in the exhaust.

any help would be appreciated.

Basically you have 2 choices. You can either re-weld everything or replace everything. And since you've found one spot of rust around the exhaust gasket, how many more are there that you can't see? IMO, you're better off replacing the whole exhaust because of the fact that no sooner than you get one problem fixed, another of the same type could pop up at any moment. Plus replacing the entire exhaust system now instead of in pieces could save you alot of money.
