CAT BACK over the axle clearance (lowered Boss)

I am having issues with my 3" Magnaflow system. My car is kind of low on its KW coil overs - but not THAT low.
The axle hits the pipes hard when at full compression, no matter how I adjust the system.
Thinking about either a custom cat back system or a Borla, which seems to have that extra 120 degrees bend to clear the axle...and a bit smaller pipes (2.75 vs 3")
Any opinion or experience would be greatly appreciated.

I too have the MagnaFlow Boss 302 cat back 3.0" system and have the same issue with clearances but only on the L/Side OTA pipe. Hits the body.

Love the sound and performance of the X-Files system, but now thinking about same. 2.75" system. Purchased from eBay supplier very early after the release of the system fortunately only paid $892. But sometimes wonder if MagnaFlow made any changes to the L/Side pipe on later systems made for the Boss.

Any others with problems?

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
Mine was hitting the panhard brace. I added spacers to the drivers side underneath to gain clearance. I am riding on t springs
