    So I purchased a 91 Hilux (2wd) and the headers it had installed are for 4wd. The piping is sitting below the body and its stopping me from lowering my truck (which I can't wait to do). Would i be able to bend the piping to achieve a better angle? If yes, what would be the best way to do this.

    (Also the way it's sitting the piping taps on the torsion bar when the truck is running)

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    20201016_104409.jpg this is the exhaust that was on it when I purchased the truck. I have since swapped it out with a flowmaster 40 but because of the angle from the headers I'm still having the same issue

    If you have access to a welder just buy flanges and tubing from Summit and redo it otherwise take it to a shop and have it redone.

    Or get the proper header

    O
    Okay. Thank you for the reply! I just wasn't sure if cutting, bending, and re welding would cause issues. I'm still a noob lol
