Question about Akrapovic Tail-pipes

I found the height of inner tail-pipe is a little bit higher than the outer one on both sides. In fact, I did check the height of the mufflers' outlet pipes. Their heights are almost the same. However, after the installation of tail-pipes (I push the tail-pipes very hard), one is higher than the other.

I did a google search for those Akrapovic installation photo and found the same problem.

Is it normal? If not, how can I adjust the tail-pipes?

Thanks!
Eddie

I found that if I pull the tail-pipes a little bit out, then it is easier to adjust
