Can you run true duals over each side of the axle?

This is a discussion on Can you run true duals over each side of the axle? within the External Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; I read the whole true duals sticky and this question hadn't been asked. Has anyone tried to run true duals ...

    Can you run true duals over each side of the axle?

    I read the whole true duals sticky and this question hadn't been asked. Has anyone tried to run true duals over both sides of the axle? can it be run between the axle and panhard rod on the driver's side if the ABS module is relocated? Has anyone tried to do this?

    I've seen it done several times before. One of the sponsors also sells a panhard relocation thing that gives more space to do this.

    I can't see any pipe fitting over the driver's side of the axle.

    Dual exhaust has always been a real drawback with these cars unfortunately. I wouldn't even attempt running a pipe over the driverside, that would mean running the pipe down the full length of the driverside of the car and the floor space really isn't there for that, it would hang really low.
    On the passenger side at least you can tuck the pipes up close to the driveshaft for extra clearance.
    I think I would rather 4 link the car and get rid of the torque arm/panhard all together before trying to run a pipe on the driver side

    It is not worth it to run it on the drivers side. There is plenty of room on the passenger side, and like INMY01TA, said, get the panhard relocation bar to make it much easier to run it over the axle.

    not necessary, if you use 2.5" pipe. if you use 3" pipe, then you'll have to use the relocation bar.

    O.K. I have designed 2 different TD systems! You do not absolutely need the relocation bar, but it gives far better clearance, and makes the J.O.B. much easier! IMO, GET IT!

    so people *have* done this? I believe I can relocate the ABS wiring and make it all fit. has anyone seen a setup like this before and if so can you post any pictures?

    Using the relocation bracket make for a cleaner job so you do not have to go under the panhard bar which looks hideous!

    This brings up a question. If someone were to go with a Bassani exhaust,,,and has the panhard relocation setup,,,,(I don't but this peaked my interest) Would the Bassani work? Since one pipe already goes under the panhard bar I would think a relocation bracket might complicate things on this setup? Could you please clearify this mrr23?

    It would cause a small issue, but the Bassani TD system is designed for the factory setup!
