So i took my pipes off to rewrap my baffles and I've had nothing but problems trying to seat the pipes again properly. Had 2 exhaust studs come out and for the life of me i can't get the front pipe tightened down enough. I can hear it sucking air and I've taken them off a few times and never had any issues. Also the bottom exhaust nut on the front pipe is only possible to turn with an open end wrench which still fits awkwardly and kind of strips the head of the nut slowly. Any tips? I don't have the heat shields on either makes it even more awkward to tighten the exhaust nuts.
Put a washer (Or 2) on the studs on top of the pipe before you put the nut on.
I think, though I may be wrong, I had to buy a Thin Wall socket for the bottom bolt.
