what about getting shorter hangers? id be happy even if it was only an inch below the bumper
idk maybe i should have it rebent i wasnt happy with it the first time they did some mandrel bends and some crinkle bends

alright thats what i was thinking cuz they never did from the cat back like i told them to
they hacked the old muffler off and started from there and went back
but doing it this way i have to get new shorter hangers?

no it should be the same since your raise in the body 3 inches then the exhaust 3 inches should be the same

heads up...

If you ever decide to run 2" chevy drop shackles, you cannot do exhaust like that while being bodylifted.

no not plannin on double liftin
but if i do i will just get new springs because mine are shot thanks for the heads up tho

i just looked under my truck and i might be able to raise the system up without welding
because right after the cats the pipe goes down about 2 in then 2 ft after that it goes back up so what i will do is just cut the part that drops down and get a straight piece of pipe and use clamps to hold it on then i will just take the hangers and shorten them and see if i cant get it to get close to what i need
a little off topic but can i drill new hows on the side of my hitch mounts to raise it up instead of cutting and welding
