Take it to a shop and have it adjusted if they can, then use weld in strapping with rubber inserts to secure it. What I did to secure and straighten my tail pipes

You'll need to go to a local shop and ask. They'll likely need to look at it on the lift before quoting you. My guess $30-$50 in my area

Do you have to make any adjustments to your exhaust back when you first got lowered?
