Default Borla Exhaust hanging low

Don't know if this is normal.. but I had another ClubLexus member compared his stock exhaust (which I can't even see from the back) and the Borla Exhaust.

It's seems Borla Exhaust is hanging low compare to stock, is this normal?

I have my car lowered and having this exhaust this low has cause a few issues with going over speed bump.

Note: the muffler hangers are in attached and in place.

not sure if its normal but it does look low to me. I had a borla on my lowered G35 and dented it badly when I drove a shredded tire. Borla did replace for free under 1,000,000 mile warranty. Im sure the Borla owners will chime in. we need another member to match this photo so we can compare directly

You have to make sure that the pipes from the mufflers align with the diffuser tips. After I installed mine I realized that the pipes from the left muffler were pointing slightly up (the back of the muffler hanged low and so did the pipe). I just unscrewed the bolt/clamp, pushed that pipe up and tighten the bolt/clamp again. After that, everything aligned perfectly and the pipe didn't hang that low.

You can even see it in your picture how the back of the left muffler is hanging lower than the right one.

There is 1 attached exhaust hanger in the middle, ISF comes with 2nd hanger but Borla does not support 2nd hanger in the middle.

jat0223 would you post your Borla setup.

Borla was definitely an easier install than Joe Z.
