I used a product called chamber seal on my sled and it worked pretty well it is an elastic like seal that comes in strips that you stretch around the pipe. I found it at Dennis Kirk

For ball joints like that I use header wrap. I wrap it tight and use quite a bit. Then when I put the springs over it the springs grab tighter too.

The high temp red stuff lasts longer if you apply it to the socket end of the ball joint, let it set until it completely cures, then put the exhaust together. It lasts longer, but not forever...

If this is the way you did it, sorry for stating the obvious!

I used to race with hex clutches....
