Hello fellow Vetters... I'm pretty sure this question has been passed around before. But... I can't get my B&B Bullets to line up right. One hangs low one sits high, bolts are tight, hangers are on.:thud:
Can't part with them they sound so good, I have to make it right!

Thanks, enjoy the power but drive safe!

Just keep at it,i have B&B route 66 oval tips,and they are a little tuff to line up,but here they are.Make sure eveything is nice and tight too,so they don't shift after a few miles.

Hi, I also had the same problem with my B&B Bullets. It turned out one had a defect so I sent it back to B&B. It was a nightmare getting evrything worked out. In the end I FINALLY got them to send me a new one. I think this is a comon problem with the bullets and C5's. :drink:

I don't have bullets but have the original ovals. Put the same on my son's 00 coupe and had alignment problems. We wound up putting a spacer or two between the frame and the slotted hanger tha is held on with 2 bolts that are straight down basically under the tail lights but on the bottom of the frame. The BB's have a tongue that sticks out. That tongue goes into the bracket I am talking about.

Exactly what I found with my Bullets. My drivers side tip sits about a 1/8" higher than the other, so I'm gonn put a little shim in the hanger to level em out.

NO...NO....NO...

It has nothing to do with hangars or defects. You make the adjustment/correction on the 2 bolt connection exhaust flange where the exhaust pipe goes up and over the rear axle.

Get your hangar brackets on and aligned.... now go up underneath the car and loosen the 'offending' dangler. Have someone hold it in position, just a touch above the other side, then give it a good hard tighten on the two bolts, and you're good.

I dinked around with that till I was about run out of ideas, then it came to me - no problem since.

I had done that 3 times before I finally used the washers.
