Unhappy problem with my greddy

hey guys,

i just installed the greddy evo2 exhaust on the accord about 2 days ago. im really enjoying the sound and everything, it sounds sooo nice. i also have a video of the sound and stuff, which i'll post up later.

but i have one problem, the exhaust looks wayyy crooked. wayy crooked. i dont know what wrong with it. the left exhaust muffler hangs wayy lower than the right one. it looks really messed up. i even raised up the car today again to take a look at it, and i have no idea how to fix it. the rubber hanger pieces are really tweaked and there's no way to fix it without bending the hangers on the car and the exhaust. the hangers on the exhaust are also grinding against the metal shrowds underneath the car. here are some pix to help visualize. im thinkin of emailing greddy and askin them whats up. im pretty sure i installed it correctly.



i tried slipping the exhaust hangers through the rubber evenly, but it wont budge, the whole thing just wont move. its pretty tight.

im not sure what to do, has anyone else had this problem before? how can i fix it?

thanks guys

Take it to your local Midas or Menike. They can fix it. Cheap.

I had the same exact problem on my install. The left muffler hung considerbly lower than the right side. So I took it to my local muffler shop and they tweaked with the rubber bushing and they also had to heat up my piping with a torch in order to bend it. But now its fine. But just take it to a local muffler shop and they should be able to fix it.

it looks like the hangers aren't fully on the rubber hangers. Try pushing them through a little more first. It looks like a bump in the road will get the hangers out of the rubber things.

naw i tried slippin them on fully. in order to slide them on, the exhaust needs to be pushed back. there's no way the exhaust can be moved or tweaked. there are 5 hangers total, 3 of them are perfect, the other 2 are tweaked as hell.

Well, the manager at the muffler shop is my next door neighbor and i've sent him alot of customers. So on small things, the hooks me up for free. But any muffler shop shouldn't charge more than $20. I could be wrong but you just have to ask.

i think there's a rule or law sayin that as long as u can see the brake lights light up from 1000 feet away, then its ok. but i dunno. ive gotten pulled over for speeding twice with the lights like that, and the cops never said anything about it, and they didnt give me the ticket for speeding. so i guess its all good, lol.

stopped by at Midas today, and the guy checked it out. he told me he'd charge 25 bucks if i let him do it today, cause his manager was gonna come back tomorrow, and then it would cost 45-50 bucks. but yeah, i let him do it, and he fixed it in 30 min. looks great. he rewelded the hangers and made it hook like. i'll take pics of how it looks and what he did, tomorrow.
