After some searching and reading the consensus seems to be that if you want/require a 3" exhaust and want a panhard bar and torque arm more than likely the exhaust will need to be dumped before the axle or converted to a side exit.
I've got a single 3.5" exhaust that X's into 2 3" pipes right at the tailshaft of the transmission. (Viper T56) This exhaust arrangement is for a T76 turbo. I called MM and asked them about my suspension options and was told they had no idea what would fit based on the degree of modification.
I thought I would reach out to the people here to see what people with turbos have done for rear suspension. I would really like to keep the full exhaust to keep the car quiet.
Does anybody here have significant suspension modifications with a turbo exhaust and/or a T56? If so, what did you do and do you have any pictures? (I've read that the torque arm will fit fine with a T56)
Thanks!

Fays2 watts link fits with flowmaster 3" tails. Then you need to find a TA or 3-link to work with the fays2. I use an EVM but they are no longer in business.

Take it to an exhaust shop and have them fab something up. It'll cost more but I'm sure they can make it happen. I took my car to an off-road truck shop and they made an X, moved the cats and tucked it up really nice. I too have a T-56 but from the Cobra. I'm not running 3" pipes, but they made it fit really nice. No more scraping.

Thanks for the advice guys. My fabrication shop is only worried about the amount of room these parts take. I've got two external fuel pumps, fuel lines, y block, etc all running around the area of the rear suspension. I found a picture of the MM panhard bard and torque arm. The panhard bar wont fit under any circumstance, the torque arm has a chance. I was hoping that somebody had done it. The only other turbo car I found with all of these parts ran a single exhaust. I'd just prefer to keep the duals and two mufflers, it's already loud enough.

Why not just run UNDER the axle? Get the parts installed (I'd do the Steeda 5 link, but that's just me), and lift the car so the rear is at full droop, and have the fab shop mock it up from there! I've seen this done on a few race cars that couldn't take the cabin noise from dumps.
