muffler fitment

Just installed a pair of S borla mufflers[axel back]. The right side comes out and and inch to long. Left side is perfect. I don't se a way to adjust the length since its on like a ball joint I could go up,down,left & right but is there away to adjust length? I need to lose close to an inch....Thank you.

Measure and compare the tip lengths on right and left. Not likely but could be a manufacturing defect. I was surprised to discover that the tips on my stock mufflers are 1/4" different in length.
 
update: called borla this morning explained how it didn't fit right and all they want is a picture and proof of purchase and I will get a replacement asap.

Like Lindsay said you can adjust length at the connection between the over axle pipes and the H pipe. Helps to have someone watch the tips while you move the muffler forward or back. Make sure you can fit at least a finger between the mufflers or pipes to any part of the body, no rattles or hums with clearance.

Hope the new ones work out for you. I was leaning towards these. Let me know what your thoughts are on the sound from both the side and rear.
 
!st quality,4.5 inch od tips polished all the way back to the muffler,quiet at idle,nice deep sound,zero drone. I think Borla is number 1. But just my opinion.
