Default Bent exhaust pipe help

Hi,

The guy that I bought my 91 ranger off of, had the suspension come down all the way and it bent the exhaust pipe pretty good. Is there any easy way to bend it back to allow better flow? or do I need to buy a welder and have a try at re-running the pipe?

I'll try to remember to take a pic tonight.

i wish i knew a beter way to explain it but isnt there a balloon type thing u can put in there and inflate until it pushes the dent back out?

prolly have to try welding in which case id cut off the bent part and reweld a new piece/tip

PICs ALWAYS help to understand the problem

If it is in the front where the exhaust manifold is,
It might have to be cut off and rewelded

From this angle it kind of looks like it's supposed to be like that? But it looks like it was bashed down on the rear diff. and the rear part of the pipe got pulled out of the hanger.

It cant hit the axle because the bump stop would stop it from going up that high. Looks like someone didnt know what they were doing with the bender. Is that stock or aftermarket?
