Axle-back ID?

This may be a dumb question to some, but is there an easy way to tell what axle-backs I've got on my GT? I just bought this car and it has an aftermarket system with J pipes, but I'm not that familiar with the more common brands yet. Are any of them easy to identify by looking at anything in particular? No big deal, I'm just curious what's on there.

Yes, more than likely Solo.

Solo doesn't have a maker mark on their axlebacks that I'm aware of, but if you snap a pic, any number of people would be able to confirm what they are.

Thanks, guys. I'm not home now but I think I have a quick pic I grabbed when I first brought it home. I'll post.
