Not with tool set that I have. But even if you tighten nut up - line WILL LEAK from that flex joint. Replacing line is not that bad - took me one day with saw cutting etc. Besides new line you'll need exhaust nuts and 6 exhaust gaskets, also ordering few extra exhaust studs is good idea. If you just removed your mufflers few weeks ago - no need for other gaskets.

You can see it here. On mine, the line and the exhaust touch.
I have stock muffler, distance from return line to muffler pipe in closest place is about 1in
