1995 Mustang GT. Bought Flowmaster American Thunder catback exhaust recently. Got every part installed except the rear right tail pipe won't fit over the rear axle. The left one took some work to get over the axle and I got it. But the right side is near impossible. Got the left one on using just ramps and tried jack under the rear differential to get the car higher than ramps but still won't work. Tried every angle its almost like they welded the tailpipe at a slightly different angle (it looked a little different than the other one) Any advice or tips before I take it to a shop and hopefully have it done via a lift.

here what the tailpipes look like: http://s7d4.scene7.com/is/image/Turn5/18406_alt3?$mproductlarge$&wid=810&hei=608

A lot of times you have to take the lower shock bolts out. You'll want to put jack stands in front of the back wheels under the body on pinch weld. Place jack under the center of the rear end. Jack it up a little maybe 1/2 inch. Take the lower bolts out of the shocks. Slowly lower the rear end. That should give you the clearance you need to get the pipes in.

Where are the bolts located?
