Help up-pipe trouble

Hey everyone thanks for the advice on changes my up pipe donuts. I got out there and changed the drivers side with no problems. I am stuck on the passenger side because I cant get the down pipe out of the way. I have a MBRP 4 inch TB and I cant get any of the sections to come apart. I am sure some one has had this problem and can give me so advice. Thanks in Advance. O I sprayed the joints and down into the downpipe with PB blaster in hope that it would help. I will get back at it in the morning.

Are there 4 slits cut in the downpipe where it slides together?

As a last resort you can cut the pipe and get a flat clamp to put it back together. They work great and you won't have to worry about any exhaust leaks either. Most big rig places carry them. I dunno if any auto stores keep them.

No the down pipe is inside the next section but that does give me the idea I can use a cutoff wheels and cut slits in that section if I had too

Yeah, cut 4 slits about 1/2" long. Make sure each slit is 90* from each other then stick a small pry bar or screwdriver under the pipe and pry it up a little. That is how I got my muffler off without cutting or damaging it. Should come apart fairly easy. Will still be tight but it will work.
