I bought the Diamond eye stainless dual kit because thats all I could afford. Anyone have any reports on how they hold up. I know its low grade stainless but I'm hoping it lasts a little while.

They hold up well, in most areas, but duals are a [email protected] to line up.
Don't tighten everything till you get a 2nd set of eyes on it.

I was going to try to replace as many clamps as I can with the stainless band clamps so I can take it apart if I need to but a lot of the clamps are also the hangers so...

If you have em sure, its all together but the kicker is that the passengers side pipe is about 4" closer to the tire than the drivers side one but there both the same height from the ground so it must be how the pipes bent?

Did you buy the dual, tailgate stack kit? J/K Loosen everything up. Start aligning and tightening from the back to the front. See if that helps.

4" off seems like a lot. But if you think about it, a rookike could have been bending the pipe. Made a mistake on outside/inside measurement. Bang, you have a four inch mistake.

it dont look too far off,try moving the "y" pipe to the drivers side ...it might only have to go an inch..if that.an inch there will give you 2 inches of movement on the tail ends,and 1 side moves closer to the tire 2 inches the other side moves away 2 inches...theres your 4..long story short,just try shifting the y a little, i bet it helps

The driver's side pipe is correct. You just need to move the passenger side one back to match. They exit at an angle, not at a 90 like the factory exhaust.

If you loosen the passenger side pipe at the muffler and the joint over the axle you will be able to rotate that pipe back like the other one.
