Take it back apart. Clean the joint well inside and out. Use a reasonable amount of high temp copper silicone. Let it sit over night.

Agree with .bob. While the leak really won't do anything, better to fix it right. Give the end of the overaxle pipe a good scrub with a wire brush.

its a single muffler replacement for V6 (pypes smf67).. it bolts on to the axle pipes directly. i tried different clamps it just lessened the leak as compared to the supplied clamps. i found some muffler bandage from autozone il try this hopefully it wud work. thanks a lot..

If you can't find a better clamp can you find the actual leak? I dont want to sound "back woodsy" but you might try some muffler putty if the pipe is wallowed out from a clamp, but it might have too much pressure on it and just blow it out anyway.
