Is that after you lowered the car?

Nope. After I put the O/R X on. It was a tad longer than stock. Had to re angle it. I might switch to an H pipe and remove the resonators. When I remove the resonators I'll have them shorten then OTA pipes a little.

Undo the bolts that connect that pipe to the h/x pipe and have someone turn it till it sits correctly and then tighten it down. If it is that far over it will be angled incorrectly and you probably have a leak too.

Other way is you can pull the axle back off and bend the hangers until the OTA pipe sites correctly in them.

For me it was putting the x pipe on and then just putting the OTA pipes in and bolting them down. Just never crossed my mind that they would turn. Obviously they do just wasn't there in my mind.

I've decided that the squeak appears to be coming from in the shocks themselves. Any ideas? Spraying lube in them seems like the only option but I don't know if that's a good idea.

Had a similar problem a long time ago. Ended up I found the nut that holds the shock at the bottom came off and the shock was just resting on the bolt. Put a new nut on and retorqued it and it was perfect. This was on an 04 scion tv though... But might help.

Not a bad suggestion. I believe the WSM has all suspension bolts listed as one-time use. I strongly recommend using blue loctite when re-assembling anything in the suspension, if not replacing the hardware.
