Got my Diamond Eye 5" installed and questions?

So as the title states I got my exhaust installed but it seems that i got a jumble of different clamps, I have like 3 4" clamps that i would assume go where the pieces join together without a bracket, but they are to small. IDK why I got 5 4" clamps. Think I should call diamond eye to see if i got everything i should have?

Hey Zeek, just did a 4" on mine the other day from the Turbo back did you have any issues the the Down Pipe, I thinks mine is too close to the fire wall and maybe hitting when idling hearing a slite knock on the cab.
Thanks MOFO

Sometimes mix ups happen when they are packaging the kits together, I'd either call the manufacture or the place your ordered the kit from.

with the 5" watch where the lower down pipe meets the spring hanger it can hit there and drive you crazy when you make turns, i had to "clearance it" with a BFH and a pry bar. BTW Napa has 5" clamps for dirt cheap, i bought some extras.

Hey roche837, did you have to remove the DP to pry away clearance?

Thanks for the advice
