Force the pipe over until it hangs in the right place. Exhaust is mild steel, so it'll go, and stay there. Don't be nice, be agressive. Once it's hanging in the right place, tighten the hangers to keep it there. There's a lot of room for change in the hangers, 1/4" is an easy one. Sometimes all I have needed to do is grab it with my hand and force it over a little. On a hard case you might push on the pipe with your foot, and pull with your hand. It'll go, it's not glass.
