It does have some flex, but not too much.
Not too long ago i had a broken engine mount. My exhaust kept coming apart because the transmission and engine would twist so much when i went in reverse or forward in 4low. After I replaced the broken engine mount it didn't twist as much (but still some twist) and the exhaust doesn't come apart anymore.
That's the only thing that I can think of. I mean it shouldn't just break unless you're catching rocks on it or maybe your rear axle is hitting it.
