I have some 3.5 or 4" tips on now, that angle out behind the rear tires, and the springs always hit them, and break the hangers and mess up the tips quickly. These have been on for 2 years and look like crap. Has anyone used some regular stainless pipe for the ends? I want something that won't interfere with the springs and won't have to be cleaned all the time. I want someting like the pipes on the new Silverados look, shiny, but kinda a dull silver look. They look a lot more durable than the chrome tips I have. If I run them out at a 90 degree angle will the springs still hit them? I either want to do duals, with a 3" pipe both running out at a 90 deg angle to each side, or a single at a 90 deg angle to one side, or duals, both at a 90 degree angle, but 2.5" pipes out one side. Anyone have pictures or suggestions on how to make this work? Also, will probably have the tips cut like the factory used to do, with a 45 degree cut from the bottom to the middle, and then straight fro mthe middle up...like this, but with a 45 on the bottom: ________________ .........................| _______________/ - ignore the dots That should help keep the fumes out while I'm driving with the window down in the back...I'm not really looking for looks as much as function anymore...just want something that will work well and last a long time.
