Drooping muffler after PSE install

Recommended Posts


What's your suggestion?

After a DIY PSE install, the left muffler sits/ sags around 3/4 -1 inch lower than right one no matter how much I tried to adjust the left tip.

On a similar issue, few people suggested an exhaust realignment.

What your opinion or how to do an "exhaust realignment"?

Thank you

There is some degree of adjustment possible, but the adjustment is not at the tips.

You can loosen the exhaust clamps, then also loosen the support brackets (left and right) at the rear of the PSE as well as the bolts holding the large left to right support bar/bracket on top of the PSE.

Once you have loosened everything, put a small jack under the left side of the muffler and jack it up very slowly until you get the proper alignment. Then tighten all of the bolts and clamps before you remove the jack. If you think that there is a problem that will cause the left side to appear lower, go slightly past horizontal before tightening everything up. If everything is lined up properly, the left and right tips will be exactly level on the horizontal plane.

Regards, Maurice.
