I'm in the market for a new exhaust and Mopar is one that is one my list. I've been doing some searching on the forum and found that a lot of people were having problems getting the tips aligned. I thought I read somwhere that one tip is longer than the other? Has this been fixed or is there any way to get them to line up? The only fix that I thought of was to take it to a exhaust shop because it looks as if the tips are welded on.

Thanks for any information.

BTW: If anyone could email me some pictures of their Mopar exhaust, preferrably the tips :thumbsup: that would be great.

The exhaust fits well, Borla makes a quality product. People run into trouble because the exhaust has two extra joints in it to allow it to be shipped easily (cheaply). You'll have to spend some time adjusting it to how you want it.

Do not bend the stock hangers or the hangers on the exhaust, it seems like a good idea at the time, but just complicates things.

Make sure you hang the tips well clear of the fascia. The exhaust gets hot, and will scorch the paint on the fascia. Same applies to any rear exit exhaust I suppose...

They did on mine...takes a few minutes...when you do it start tighting the bolts at the front and work back...good idea to have some one watch and help you...my brother actually held mine in place while i tightended the bolts...but they are a good system...coat the rubber hangers with wd-40( will not hurt rubber products) or whatever you like...makes getting the stock system off easier and the new one will almost slide right on. On mine i used copper sealant for a leak free system...actually had mine pop off right behind the cat.....installer error....no such thing as to tight here...just dont pop the bolt. If you can keep them about a 1/4 or 1/2 inch from the rear fasica it wont melt or scratch it...seen some nasties here.

It is commen for tips to be off even though they are made on the same jig. I have seen systems from Greddy, HKS, factory systems etc with tips that are not aligned. You can try bending the hangers to try to align it as best as you can.

The best aligned tips are down when your vehicle is on a lift and the tips are welded right there.

if you need assistance with getting the stocker unhung i suggest a hair dryer, not wd-40. it works like a champ and no oily stuff. but the smell, i miss that smell. heheh.
