Noticed drone around 2-2.5k rpm as others have experienced.

1. it seems like one side hangs a little lower than the other (left lower than right). Can this be adjusted? It looks like you can loosen up that nut and adjust the height on the right side.
2. what tool is needed to adjust the tips?
3. does an intake system theoretically change the tone of the exhaust?

well ill respond to my own post here. Got the exhaust evened out and pulled the tips out a little bit and that helped reduce the droning.

Only problem is now my car VIBRATES/RATTLES very noticeably at 60mph ~2250 rpm. Im gonna try the wine cork method mentioned earlier but god damn its annoying.

Think it could be the install? Im gonna try and take it to a shop next week to see if they can figure anything out
