    I have ramps that I made to drive up on since I couldn't get a jack under. It looks like the exhaust is hitting the stamped bar above the pan hard bar. Looks like I should have held off on welding up the exhaust...

    You may still be able to tweak it by bending the hangers a bit or with spacers. Other option would be to slice it at a spot with no bends, rotate it slightly and toss a band clamp on it.

    Next weekend I'm heading down to my father-in-laws where I have access to welders and a drive on ramp. Let's start slicing and welding!

    You could also just get a panhard bar relocation kit like I have.

    Good news, not the pan hard bar, bad news, caliper mounting bolts were loose... Lost one backing down the driveway and caught the inside of the rim and, jacked it up, and screeched the car to a halt. That's what I get for working on my car when I'm sick... Better there than on the road!

    Freaked the shit out of me. I double and triple check my work from my training on working on planes... they wouldn't let me work on plane on codeine, guess I should have taken the same precaution when working on my car.

    We all make mistakes every now and then. At least you caught it before you ended up stranded somewhere.

    Ran into a new issue. Now the wheels rub on the fenders when going down the high way and going over bridges at 80mph. New bump stops or roll the fenders?
