My EST was hanging a bit too low in the rear. I've exhausted all the adjustments in the exhaust; the next step was more drastic.

Basically, if your exhaust is hanging too low in the rear, all you have to do is jack-up the car from the rear by the two supporting exhaust brackets. When you do that, they will bend a bit uppward, thus raising the exhaust intself. Doing so gave me about an inch of extra clearance.

Just be careful, and go slow so they bend and don't crack at the weld.

Thanks for the tip, I scrape leaving my driveway (but not comming in) and had not thought about doing this

I will give it a try

I actually bent the bracket and not the welded rod itself. But I agree - bending the rod could crack the weld.
The bracket itself seems to have a lot of room/flexibility for bending though. I wouldnt worry about cracking the bracket.

Well, do you scratch the tip or the bottom part? If it's the bottom part then here's your solution!

Scrapes on part where the exhaust goes under the rear axle. This should work

Thanks again for posting the tip

Gotcha.
There are two more things you could do:
1. Hang the exhaust on the inner part of the rubber exhaust hanger (it wont all out - no worries).
2. Buy shorter rubber exhaust hangers

Good luck
