Tailpipe Fitment/Identification

I want to install a muffler delete and 3" tailpipes.
-Has anyone identified a set of 3" tailpipes that have fit over the axle, proper clearance?
__________________________________________________________________
Can anyone identify these tailpipes that merge??
Thanks,

Tailpipe Fitment/Identification

That looks nothing like the exhaust system of any 96-04 I've ever seen to be honest. I'm not familiar with the side exhaust options but unless they changed the side exhaust out and put tailpipes on I'm at a loss

I've seen a 3" IRS kit... which is the only possible thing I could see that kit fitting is the IRS. Getting 3" pipes over the axles would be really tricky tho, not saying it can't be done but I'd go dumps or sidepipes TBTH. You could always have a really good shop custom bend you something which is probably the route I'd go if you are dead set on a 3" overaxle setup.

Pictured is a Ford Racing M55 catback. If you can find one it will be well over $1500.

You can fit a 3" IRS catback under your SRA.

Yep but then you have to remove the catback if you ever have to unload the rear suspension if you run an IRS catback with a SRA. I've seen it done before and it looks just as good as it does on the IRS but its a PITA maintenance wise.

I've been doing it for 3 years. Really isn't as annoying as you would think.

Yeah I guess I mean how often do you need to jack up the rear of the car? Especially with a staggered wheel/tire setup that you can't rotate.
