Leveling The Exhaust

I put a level to my tip and it needs to come up about a 1/4in....Should i just take it somewhere and have them do it or is there a easy way? Thanks..

I see. We usually leave them pointing down slightly, and if the tip doesn't have a hole in it, we drill a small hole for condensation to run out of. When you firt start your truck in the morning and all that condensation comes out...thats were most of the soot on your truck comes from. There is no right way or wrong way...its your prefferance.

Loosen the clamp on the tailpipe section and tap on the pipe where it goes over the axle with a rubber mallet until your tailpipe is where you want it.

Like Pat said leaving the tip pointing down slightly will let the condensation out on startups.
