One exhaust tip a little off after Boss exhaust install

So, I got the front clamp leaks fixed up with the help of a mechanic friend, and the new Roush / Boss Quad setup sounds awesome! Fixing the leaks really finished off the new sound.

However, my passenger side exhaust tip if like 1/8" to 1/4" to the right now. The driver side looks perfect. I assume I just need to adjust something, somewhere.

What's the best way to fix this? Loosen up the mid-pipe clamps again ... that was how I aligned them the first time, but it looks like after re-seating the front clamps that one side it a tiny bit off.

Is there a trick to this, or just trial and error? Thanks.

Main thing it to adjust the over axle pipes, I would loosen them from mid pipe, adjust as necessary then retighten, this I what I had to do when my mufflers weren't centered in the rear valence

Thanks ... the Roush's were dealer-installed at time of purchase, so I was not familiar with their installation ... but that sounds a bit easier than crawling under the car to loosen the mid-pipe clamps. Thanks!

I'm referring to loosening the pipes after the midpipe from the midpipe, you'd pretty much have to crawl all the way under there... You could also just loosen the roush tips and adjust them as necessary

Ah OK ... I get it now. I have not looked at the exhaust system further back then the clamps that hook the mid-pipe to the H-pipe.

Thanks for the info ... appreciate it.

Done ... loosened the mid-pipe clamp and pushed up a bit and re-tightened. That side was hanging a tad low. Got the rest out by adjusting the tip a fraction of an inch.

I wish I had a good way to record the sound (my phone does a sucky job) as the side pipes and Roush AB's sound beastly. Once the leaks were tightened up the sound really improved over the first night.

Sweet mod ... a little pricey but now I have it and the money is gone ...
