    Hi, i recently installed a djm rear 2" block kit on my 2wd. Beautiful look wen installed however, im having some exhaust clearance issues ( contact with axel resulting in a clanging sound when suspension articulates about 3 inches). I was looking at beefed tacos rear kits, the kit with the rear shocks and the reduced bump stopps looked to be exactly what i needed, Not sure if this would help my exhaust problem..... im not sure what to do aboujt that. Please help

    Ive spent most of my spare time this last week trying to remedy my problem here.... I believe the problem is due to the aftermarket gibson catback i put on there ( i think it has a lower bend than stock) i also had to relocate what seems to be a brake line. it had a bolt hanging out of the bcak of the mounting bracket that was threatening to pierce my exhaust. Ill Take a pic of my area of concern and post it asap, THANK YOU again for all of your help guys! More advice is always welcome!!!

    Thanks again 4 the fast responses on this one... just looked, all welded, cat to tip... im thinkin shorter exhaust hangers would b my best bet, ill take a pic of that brake line mounting bolt/ bracket in the way, i relocated it one bolt lower on the mount (now only using one bolt on it) to give me about 3 inches of safe wheel travel until that damn bolt finds my poor pipe, seems like a strange place for a thing such as this to be if you ask me!!
