And your just now having a problem? It should be a slip fit and the clamp should be to tight, perhaps the clamp is bad

If all else fails, pop out the welder. One of y axle backs had the inlet flanged a quarter inch too far from the factory, but once we figured that out and I decided I wasn't gonna change them out anytime soon we just welded it up to seal the leak.

I'm putting on an off road h and I'm not sure which axel backs I'm gunna want since the pype bombs might be too loud so I want to be able to switch them out. Is there something that I can put around the pipe so it makes it tighter? The only thing I can think of is like tin foil but that seems kind of cheap

If you can find a thin enough walled pipe to fit over the over axle pipe and inside the flange of the axle-back that may help.

Go to an exhaust shop they should have a pipe bender that has an attachment to flare the end
