Default quick tip for installing mufflex

Just finished installing my mufflex kit on my express. Not usually the kind of guy to read instructions but for once i followed them to a "t"

For those of you that havent installed one of these and are planning to do so, the instructions tell you to leave the clamps loose until you determine the alignment of the tips (Paraphrasing) but what they dont tell you is the tips themselves are on their own ball and socket style clamp which makes them 99 percent adjustable..... spent nearly an hour trying to align everything in the exhaust system just to move the right side tip half and inch up and quarter inch to the right

keep in mind ive only had the truck a week so i havent had the time to notice this until now.....feeling pretty stupid right now.

The good news is.....it sounds great!
