Smile Uneven After-Market AxleBack Exhaust

Has anyone experienced uneven aftermarket axleback exhaust pipes? I read reviews online where people claimed the aftermarket exhaust looks uneven after they were installed. (Left lower right higher; One side tilted; etc) Is this a common situation? If encountered, how to have it resolved? Thanks for the replies!

It is decently common. You can try to loosen the midpipe and jossle it around a bit and see if that helps. Or you can bend the hangars a bit or cut the hangars and reweld them to get them to fit,

Thanks man. Does it happen to all brand? I am thinking of buying Borla exhausts, does it happen to Borla very often, too?

I think borla is one of the better fitting ones.

I've had both magnaflow and borla and never had a problem.

Know people who have had pypes and it is a problem. You get what you pay for in this case.

This is very true. The better quality items will always cost more. You usually experience fitment/positioning issues with cheaper mufflers. I assume not as much went into their R&D and Quality since they are a lot cheaper.

For the Trident axle-backs I have, they were uneven. I had to loosen the clamp that connected them to the over axle pipes, re-position them, then get the clamps really tight.

I see OP has another thread asking about cutting on the 2015's and assume this is where he is.....if so it'll be trickier so measure thrice cut once or go to a good shop that will take their time to make it good. I find it helpful to discuss with them before hand it needs to line up.

My Magnaflow streets fit perfect with no adjustment at all.

It seems to me, it's a part of the normal installation to simply insure their correct position before tighten down fully on the clamps.
Unless of course they are way off and more drastic measures are required.

Nope, makes too much sense.

How much would you pay for Borla axleback Exhaust? I saw online the listed price are like 750 for 2015. Any suggestions where I could get them cheaper?

Borla is quality so it is expensive. You can look for a used set but obviously probably not many out there yet.

No problem...it is easier to tell them you'll be looking for alignment. Yeah they should do it but it's easier to be polite and go "not to sound stupid or insulting but...."

I have Magnaflow streets on my 3.7 Cyclone and it does sure sound nice. Actually it sounds great for a V6. I'm more then pleased. They also look great.
*********************************BUT*********************************************************

They sure don't sound as good as a V8 Coyote with a set of Magnaflows.
And The V8 Coyote V8 does not sound as good as the old 4.6 V8.

I'm happy with the nice deep rumble I have and it sure sounds good to me.

Just curious...Is the rest of your exhaust stock. Headers & mid-pipe.

Other than the fit how do you like Tridents. Any Drone?
