D&D exhaust leak

I have the D&D black satin for an 04 and where the mid-pipe connects to the end-pipe there are slight leaks around the clamps....help?


Thanks!

Have you tried to loosen the clamp, spin it over the leak/hole, and then retighten it? Are you sure the pipe isn't crooked or twisted? Try loosening all the mounting bolts and then tighten the mid-pipe clamp again. Then retighten everything back up. If that doesn't work you may have to buy some high-temp sealant.

Make sure the pipes fit together well and either outlet is bent out of space. If the outlets look to be in good shape, use some of that exhaust sealant from your local auto parts store, thats what I did to fill in any of the gaps.

So far, so go.
