How to get MBRP exhaust pipes apart???

I have an MBRP 4" exhaust on my 6.0. After about 3 months of driving it, i opened the hood to check on things and i found a gap in between the down pipe and turbo outlet. So i decided to loosen the clamp and try to straighten it up, and now i cant get it back on at all! So ive taken all of the exhaust clamps off and im trying to seperate the pipes so that i can position the down pipe correctly. Has anyone else had to do this? Are there any easy ways to seperate the pipes? Thanks in advance.

Never use those crappy u-bolt clamps. You'll never get the pipes apart again. I always use band clamps. Costs a little more but there is no problem getting them apart. Especially if you use anti seize putting them together. Band clamps FTW.

My exhaust had 4 relief cuts in it to aid in clamping. A flat screw driver and hammer were enough to lift up the union to get it apart.
