Exhaust alignment problem

So I have long tube headers with an o/r bbk x pipe and slp loudmouth exhaust. My problem is for the life of me I can not get the tips to sit equal. The driver side sits higher and almost pointing up while the passenger sits lower and straight out of the back. I have searched the forums and can not find anything on this same problem. One more thing I had flowmasters on there before when I bought the car and the tips sat the same way they do with the new exhaust. Any advice that maybe I am missing or does it matter that I have long tubes because I have heard that could be the problem. One last thing my x pipe hangs really low and its a pita because the hangers always scrape. Ill try to post pictures up tomorrow. Thank you for any advice.

Do you have a regular or shorty x pipe? You have to run a shorty x pipe with long tubes

Take it to a shop one of your hangers was welded higher than the other.

jjsg09 is right a muffler shop can redo your hangers to where they will sit properly.
