Axle back exhaust alignment problem

Hello, I installed Flowmaster outlaw axle back on my 07 GT. I ran in to a problem with the passenger side exhaust. Its about 1/2 inch lower than where it should be. Is this a faulty hanger from Flowmaster? The driver side is perfect. Thanks

How did you bend it? Did you have to heat it up or anything? My pype bomb axle backs are off a little bit

It's all about the smiles per gallon

Well that's easy enough, I didn't realize they were that flexible. I'll definitely give that a try.

I would loosen all your mounting hardware, get someone to hold them in place while you torque the bolts.

I have already tried that. Gotta be a issue with the hanger being just a little off when it was made. Thanks

I tried pulling the tips up on my passenger side and have not been able to get it lined up. The other option is to take it to an exhaust shop and have them bend it for a couple of bucks.

It worked. Thanks. I ended up taking the axle back off and using a pipe to bend it. I did not have to jack up the car.

Did you bend the hanger up or down?

Honestly I am amazed that they can weld brackets on to them and have them line up decently well.

Axle back exhaust alignment problem

half the time I have to cut off the brackets and reweld them in a different location because there was too much stress on the system...
