DIAMOND EYE EXHAUST PROBLEMS

Just looking for some input on my exhaust system. I installed a 5 inch Diamondeye sys with the 4 inch down pipe about a year ago. Since then I have battled with this thing rubbing against the shackle bolt and the crossmember. I was able to gain clearance on the crossmember and nothing has moved since. I used a prybar to gain clearance at the shackle bolt and gained about a half inch. If I go any further from the shackle bolt it will rub against the trans dip stick. Anyways I feel a vibration on rough roads and sometimes when i make a left turn. Is this normal with this system? Should I take it to a muffler shop and see if they can adjust or modify it, weld it?? By the way at the rear where it exits its almost if not rubbing the rear shock.. I almost wished I would have went with a 4 inch MBRP!

I have the 4' compressor back system. I've had it for about a year and a half and like it just fine. No rubbing and is pretty stealthy til you get on it a little, then it has a nice rumble.

Yes with leaf sprung front ends, especially with lift shackles, i had to physically dent in the pipe where that bolt was rubbing, but since then i have had no issues. I noticed mine on rough roads and left turns as well

My 5" diamond eye rubs a little on the cross member but that's because I lost a hanger lol didn't get the sucker on tight enough I guess. Other than that no complaints here. Sound is killer!!!!!! Lots of compliments on the sound of my truck with this exhaust on it.

Oh I agree i didn't like the setup for the joints either. And if all you wana do is clamp them I do not recommend that at all. I too had to space them out an in fact cut a small section of the extra piping that I had left over to make it work right. But welded it up nice and haven't looked back. Got a killer deal on the price so I can't complain about having to do a little "extra" on the install.
