Driveshaft clearence

I have a 4" Axle Exchange driveshaft and adjustable Eibach suspension. The driveshaft is contacting this plastic gas tank shield in the shaft tunnel. Has anyone had issues with this? What could fix the issue? Pinion angle or what? I had to raise the rear suspension to near stock height to prevent the shaft from rubbing when hitting everyday bumps in the road. I haven't tested it on big bumps on the highway yet, but I'm worried it may still hit.

Should've gone with a smaller DS! Thanks for any input you can provide...

Just installed a Dynotech Aluminum Driveshaft w/ Eibach lowering suspension already on the car. No clearance issues, but the Dynotech is a 3.5" driveshaft. Do you have an adjustable panhard bar?

Ah, yes I do, still haven't had it professionally aligned though as I continue to fiddle with the ride height...

I imagine that 1/2 smaller shaft doesn't have any issues, but I have never heard of this clearance issue with the 4". I've read a lot of people saying nothing but good things about the axle exchange shaft...maybe I'm the only lowered axle exchange user? Nahhhh....

Idk maybe if I lower it and set the Panhard bar perfect, the rear end can compress without contact, or I'll have to carve up the tank shield.
