problems with pypes pype bomb axle back

I just tried installing the pypes axle back pype bomb kit, and while the passenger side went on with no issue, the drivers side has not been fitting right. It is tight with the hangers, and it sticks out more than the other side... I feel like I need to bend the hangers... Any tips?? Worst case my girlfriends dad has tons of experience with cars considering he owned his own restoration shop.

I had to bend my hanger to get it to fit somewhat right. I have the offroad h and mid muffler set up. Have had nothing but trouble getting everything to line up properly and stay there. Have had an ongoing battle with leaks also. CANT wait until I get longtubes on this thing so I can get everything welded solid and leak free

Re: problems wiyh pypes pype bomb axle back

We had to heat up the hanger on the passenger side and bend it a little so it matched the driver side...Make sure not to extend it out to far so it doesn't leak... Just a little extra care goes a long way

Unbolt the midpipe and you will be able to adjust it better.I had the same issue with mine.

Re: problems with pypes pype bomb axle back

there is a little bump stop on the pipe that wont let the axle back go any farther back or perhaps its the hanger bumping on something im thinking of, by removing that you should be able to slide them back in how they should be. Nothing is worth than an exhaust tip stuck out to much.

Re: problems with pypes pype bomb axle back

Yah I've heard quite a few things regarding fitment too. My system had to be shortened 3 inches to fit underneath properly...and it's a shame too because Pypes makes a decent product, I like their mufflers and a lot of people like the x-pipes, but when people start talking and fitment issues pops up, it tends to make people leary of that company.

Re: problems with pypes pype bomb axle back

On my stock exhaust the passenger side tip sticks out 1" further and hangs 3/4" lower than the other side. In my excitement at time of purchase of my GT I did not notice it and when I finally noticed it the ford dealer would not fix it under warranty saying that it was within tolerances. Now that it is out of warranty I am finally replacing them.

I have seen some complaints about fitment issues on the Pypes violators and bombs but I have also seen literally hundreds of very happy owners of pypes bomb mufflers in product reviews and in forums and for the price I intend to try them out myself on my 2007 GT.

I figure if fitment issues arise then I will just take it into my local garage and fork over the cash to get the final fitment right. I hear it is about another $75 to do that and that makes them still cheaper than many other mufflers. I think in the case of mufflers it really is in the "ear" of the beholder and these are considered a great buy by many.
