My driver's side tail pipe sits about two inches too far forward, which is must to clear the panhard bar.
If the tailpipe were any further backwards, it would contact the panhard bar and make a lot of noise. The PHB can't be back any further because of the fuel tank.
Here is a view of where the torque arm meets the cross member. The long bolt that goes through the bushing is VERY close to the X portion of my X-pipe. If I were to shorten the bolt, it would be almost impossible to get the nut started when reinstalling the torque arm. Please note also that the top portion of the rubber bushing has been cut in half. This needed to be done to keep the top of the bolt from contacting the driveshaft...which it still does anyway on rare occassions.
The driveshaft isn't in bad shape...yet. I have GOT to rid of this torque arm before that becomes a severe safety hazard though. I might add that this is a very small diameter (3.5") driveshaft that replaced the larger FMS aluminum driveshaft I had previously. There was no mention that the driveshaft and torque arm bushing would be occupying the same space, but they were all too happy to sell me a smaller driveshaft.
So due to the bolt of the torque arm being in close contact to the X-pipe, the exhaust piping is forced to dip down well below the cross member right in the center of the car, where ground clearance is needed the most.
Even with the exhaust where it is, there is still only an inch or so between the cross member and the X-pipe. It couldn't come up much higher due to the straight nature of the cross member. The cross member is firmly in the "dimple" in the floor pan as per the instructions. It could not go any higher, and again, if it were higher, it would hit the driveshaft (even more).
I am really looking forward to cutting these out and installing the Maximum Motorsports parts I've ordered.
