Pypes Rubbing

I purchased my Pypes Axle Back exhaust and finally got it on. My main issue is the driver side keeps rubbing on the bumper cutout. Any tips on how to get it straightened out without taking it to a shop to have another hanger welded in?

Top or sides?

It doesn't need a new hanger, just an adjustment. You have to loosen the clamp by the over the axle pipes. Hold the tip where you want it to be and then tighten it down. Its very easy.

You can also loosen the clamps where the midpipe meets the overaxle pipes and rotate the pipes to help line them up. That's what I had to do

I can envision cases where WhoDat's procedure may be necessary.
I had to jam some wood between the tip and the cutout and then loosen and re-tighten the bolts.
Having two people would be best.

On the tip itself, I wrapped a folded up towel around it to keep it centered in the cutout

I was having the same issue with my Pypes exhaust so i bought some v clamps and tighten it up but after a couple of months it will still make a noise. So now i'm just getting Roush axle back.

I've the same issues with mine honestly I just think that's where the price becomes a factor seeing as they are cheaper than most other options they seem to "re-adjust" themselves eventually. I've adjusted mine twice now and eventually they go back to rattling against the cutout again and again. Not sure if there is a solution I'm not using or should be using but I've had this same issue so no worries on being alone lol
