Exhaust hiting bumper need help!

I instaled my TRD exhaust(used) this weekend but i noticed that the tip is hiting the bumper and already chiped some paint in the arc for the exhaust.(can only see if you look at it from the botom tho)Ive tried pushimg the tip to the side but it just comes goes back to touching the bumper.
How can i adjust it??? confused
Do you need to install the stock bolts that have the springs inthem in order to make it alighn itself?
(I put some other bolts cus no hex nut would go into the bolt with the spring so i went to pep boys to buy hex nut but none of them went in the bolt with the spring)

it's a simple $10 job for ANY muffler shop to do. Here is mine - lowered by about 1 inch for my kit... notice the darker stock location just about it's current position:

When I stick the factory stock bumper back on for the week, the 1" distance that it had been lowered by is overly obvious wave

A really ghetto way is to stick a small rock in the rubber mount.That's what I did do drop mine a touch. Quick and dirty fix.
