Okay so I just had my exhaust done this weekend (it sounds great). But it scrapes on hills or speed bumps, a LOT more than usual. I was wondering if yall thought that the exhaust shop would fix it for free or not. The guy didn't put the mufflers in the tunnels, he just welded them right behind the cats. Also will putting the mufflers in the pocket fix all/most of the scraping?

Okay thanks. I figured it needed to be fixed. I just don't have the money to get it redone if they won't do it for free.

Does anyone have a picture of it from under the car so I can attempt to show him to make sure its done right the second time?

They just need to tuck it in better. Now mine it a V8 car but it really doesn't matter they can tuck it up under the car better. Look how mine barely hangs down below the rocker panel flange. Just tell them to tuck it in better.

Thanks for the picture. I can see it just fine but that's partly because I know how it's supposed to look. I don't know how well the shop will be able to understand that. I guess a lift picture would be my best bet. Or draw it lol
