Muffler Allignment

I just put on my mufflers again and my drivers side one keeps pulling over to the left when I drive. I can fix it when I stop but as soon as I drive on it again, it shakes back over. Any good way to keep it centered?

might have to tweak the mounts a little. what brand? pypes are known for having to have some fitment issues. ive had a set of m80's that the tips were like that and also a set of pype bombs that were also always moving around and never really got the drivers side right.

Go to a muffler shop and have them add a extra hanger right behind the tip to the frame of the car and its fixed. I did it and i can kick and push my tips and they stay centered!!

When I installed my roush the driver side was way off centered, I just loosened the clap just enough to be able to move and center the muffler, held it there and tightened the clamp back and perfect! It's been a week a still perfect!

If you (or road vibration) are able to have the axle back muffler move, then it's not tightened down enough at its flange connection.

Just loosen the flange connection, center your muffler and hold it or have a friend hold it centered while you re-tighten. Work perfectly!

Adjust your cat-back pipe and it will center. I had to do it on mine

The problem seems to be when I drive, it vibrates out of the hanger closest to the back of the car, causing it to move to the left.

Trust me mine did the same thing. Loosen everything including the cat back pipe then tighten them from the front to back.

Does that hanger have a stopper welded on the end of it? It really shouldn't vibrate out of the holder, but if it doesn't have the stopper on the end I can see it being a problem! Is it your stock mufflers or aftermarket?

I just had to loosen the axel back to straighten it. But if it doesn't work for you do what black on black says.

They are after market I've never had this proven before even without the stopper. I might need to take it off and just put it back on.
