Delete Pipe/Exhaust Question

I deleted my truck about a month ago but left the factory muffler in place. I have noticed that it seems the exhaust tip is moving back out of the hanger right behind the muffler (the one that holds the tips up). I sprayed wd-40 on them when installing the delete pipe so i could slide it back some but what is causing it now? Axle wrap? The pressure going through the muffler? It seems to only happen when after i push the skinny pedal down hard. Thoughts?

maybe just the vibration is causing it to come loose.. i'm not sure.. i didn't leave my factory equipment in place, i replaced the whole thing, and i made sure all the clamps holding that sucker together were nice and tight.. drove it for 500 miles and re tightened the clamps. make sure everything under there is tight.. i've read stories on here of guys loosing the tail pipe off the truck while driving down the road.. Scary if you ask me!..

It's prolly just from the motor moving that it's popping the hanger out of the grommet. I would push the hanger all the way in there and clean it real good with a degreaser or something like brake cleaner to get rid of the oil residue and keep it from popping out. That or take some wire or heavy zip tie through the grommet and around the hanger to keep it in there. Another thing is make sure it's all the way through for the ledge to catch on the hanger.
