This is usually just an alignment issue, try loosening the other end of the down pipe at where it joins the tail pipe, and then try to mate up at the turbo.
Check the belled flange for cracks/dents or distortion of the bell. The same goes for the turbo side flange. If your doing this by your self you can place a floorjack just back of the taipipe to down pipe joint , just to hold in place, ya don't wanna lift the truck. Try raising and lowering the pipe gently to help align the flanges.

Definetly check the flanges for cracks. Also, I would start all over. Disconnect everything and start at the DP and work back. If you do this, snug up on the turbo clamp and rotate the pipe to make sure you have a good seat. Gradually snuging it up a bit more. Leave just enough play so you have to apply a decent amount to move it (Underneath). I know there isnt much room but you can shift it a bit. Make sure your not leaving the clamp too loose when you start installing the rest of the system. The weight from the other pipes and aligment can unseat your DP. But, definently check those flanges for damage even a slight dent or uneven surface. Good Luck!
