    i have that same problem, if you put some heat shield, or header wrap there it should go away.

    Yes lots of people do. Only correct way to fix it imo is to have an exhaust shop cut the y pipe and drop it a bit where it's hitting. Doesn't take long. All these other suggestions are just band-aids.

    Bump stop works great, although i still had some banging, so i cut about 12" section out from the y pipe where it was banging under the driverside floor board and welded in a new piece with a lower bend.
    No issues now
