yeah I took a dead blow hammer and gave the resonator delete pipes a good whack to make sure they were seated well. it helped. Ive seen a lot of stock rams too with the same issue. the only adjustment is the passenger side tailpipe. you can move it out. It has a metal tab on the y pipe section that the tailpipe slides into for alignment.
I will give that a try thanks.

Hi guys, I noticed some of you talking about how one tip sticks out farther than the other after the resonator delete is installed. They should stick out the same as each other as well as the same as from the factory. If they do not it is most likely because the factory tubes have not been slid on enough inside the expanded part. Please just try to slide the farthest one out on a little more, this is best done carefully with a dead blow hammer, if needed you can spray the inside a bit with WD-40 to get it to slide better. It will be much easier to do before you clamp them tight for the first time, it is best to leave everything a little loose until the tips are where you want them, then do a final tighten.

So after several months any many miles with the B2 Fabrication (Moderate / Magnaflow) Muffler. I was getting some blow-by at the clamp.

When this first happened after the install I just needed to tighten it down some more.

After time I had tightened it down as fas as I could and was still getting blow-by. I took the truck to the local muffler shop and put it up on the lift. The muffler guy moved the clamp to a different location and orientation and it still leaked. After close inspection is was leaking at the cut in the pipe and had created a spoon like effect at that location.

So we welded the muffler on and just left the clamp in place. This quited down the excessive drone and noise from the muffler in the cab.

I'm still pleased with my decision to go this route.
