While backing off an incline, I scrapped the left exhaust, moving it out of position. I've taken the rear bumper and heat shields off. I cannot see where I've broken any hangars or attachment points. Nothing looks like it's been bent on the muffler. I've tried pushing the muffler towards the car and lifting with a jack, but it's not moving back into position.

The only other thing I see is some scrapping on the left side of the sway bar. I wonder if I moved the engine? Any thoughts on what may be broken?

The muffler tips are clamped on and I think you moved one of them. Should be able to loosen the clamp and move it back into position. As for the sway bar, it has a few bends in it. I don't see you bending it by without doing damage to anything else. I've seen damage on under carriage parts by wreckers using them hold down points.

Since I didn't see anything specific broken, I was going to put everything back together and try to re align the tailpipe. At least it would look normal from the back. Just when I get the headlight washer covers replaced, this has to happen. What is it with these cars?

The problem was from a failed motor mount. I replaced them with some cheap ebay mounts and one of them failed less than a month later. I replaced them with oem parts and haven't had any problems in months. The cheap ebay mounts were not hydraulically filled. My recommendation is to buy from a known vendor like Pelican Parts, as getting any customer service from ebay or the seller was a PITA.
