Exhaust adjustment question

Hi guys, I had a diffuser installed recently and after the installation i can barely see the exhaust tips. So i'm wondering is there any easy way to adjust the muffler to move it outward a little bit?
Any input will be appreciated, thanks!

It's gonna depend on the exhaust you have man and the amount of adjustment you have

I have the innotech F1 exhaust which has electronic valve control. The adjustment should be about 2 inches outward.

I had the same issue when I got my diffuser.
you can loosen the clamps where the muffler connecting pipes connect to the X-Pipe and pull it out towards the rear. It's a bit of a PIA, I had to use a pipe wrench to get it to loosen up.

I'm also lowered but springs only, however it somehow looks so different. Is it better to actually have a sleevover kit?
