    No, I don't want to breed with them, I just would like to see some survivor pics so that I can clamp the turndown tailpipes in the right location on my duster. I have dougs headers, and accurate exhaust so I need to determine the proper place to clamp the tailpipe before I join the two. Is it clamped before or after the bend that begins the turndown sequence? A pic would make it clear to me. To clarify, the tailpipe comes out of the muffler, goes over the rear end, then it has a long straight segment. At the end of this segment it has a bend up, a short straight length, and then terminates in a bend down. Not sure if the clamp goes before the first bend, in the bend itself, or on the short straight upsweep piece? I have been surfing around and I just cant seem to find any pics that show this. I am starting to feel a bit feeble in my sleuthing abilities as well as my narrative skills in trying to explain such a simple concept! Thank you much.

    I have the proper hangers installed in the proper location, I am trying to figure out where to clamp the pipe to them

    The hanger clamp tab mounts to the tailpipe on the straight section right before the tailpipe starts bending upward. Usually the tab faces toward the rear on an a-body.
