the easiest way would be to rip old boot off, put a wood support under straight pipe then add an new boot or old one if in good shape with a small extention piece to make up 3 "

if the old boot is a 90 degree, you will need a new 90 and a straight boot

duct work

We just pull the boot lose, and drop it and the pipe to it. Just hang them with smoke pipe wire so the boot would just stick through the new ceiling. Cut both sides of the boot and turn this out so it will be on top of the new ceiling. This way you have some thing for the register screws to hold on to ED
