Possibly installed it backwards? Seen it before, some midpipes are designed to point upwards toward the underbody to [increase] clearance, not reduce it.

That's the problem with a lot of mid pipes, not just on Mustangs but others as well. On my 350z I had to take it off because it scraped on everything like yours. It's annoying.

I've heard this to be a very common problem in the S197's. There just isn't that much room under there. I was planning on a MRT catted H pipe but am afraid with the roads we have around here I'd end up catching it on a pothole and ripping my whole exhaust out. Try explaining that to Mr. Insurance Man...

More research into your roadways should have been conducted before modifying the vehicle. I have a prochamber, hangs lower, scraps over some speed bumps, it's a thing, I deal with it. Paid too much money to just remove it.

You own a mustang, deleted the cats. You own a Honda, you forget the meaning of camber, car appreciation, and taste.

I rarely go to it to modify(garage thing). I'm piecing it together for a one time install. So far I have the gt500 mounts, and Koni struts on standby. SR springs next along with upper control arm. Thanks.

Just messing with ya, I'm stock height but the pro chamber likes to smack things. I can only imagine 1.5" drop.

It did lower the axle some. This is why my exhaust kept rubbing against the rear end. You even installed them bro. Bad human. Bad.

Just to answer all questions clearly.

Stock height till summer ends. Like 4x4 with a 275/40/19 tire out back. 245/45 up front. Click image for larger version

OK, thanks.
The reason I ask is, I'll be installing my "After-Cat ProChamber" next week and hoping I don't have the scraping problem. (Not lowered yet.)

That'll depend on the shop. Mine hangs about 3-4" below a H pipe. It's a giant box you know. You'll learn to gauge speed bumps and embankments
