    I had the exhaust run when the car was raised up to its maxmum height. I then had the pipes run under the axle but the as close to the rear end as possible.

    cool thanks.. you dont have any problems removing your rear tires? i have my exhaust dump before my rear axle.. but now i will be running skirts, so i need to take them all the way back.. to remove my tire, i have to unbolt my shocks, and my air bags.. and let the axle hang down as far as possible to get my tire out.. if i have the exhaust running under.. i know it will hit.. thanks for the help!

    I killed to birds with one stone when it came to getting the rear wheels off. I wanted lips on the bottom of my skirts and ended up running 51 merc skirts on the back. This gave me a taller and wider wheel opening after i cut the quarter panels to flush fit the mercury skirts. It worked out great.
