One item that I could use your assistance on is in getting the new exhaust to cleat the cross brace so it does not rattel

Washers.

The ARH setup you picked up didn't come with that cross member spacer kit?

Been forever since I dealt with ARH, but I remember them having a cross member drop down kit.

I know that the MBRP ones do since the pipes are bigger and hang lower.

Not too hard to remedy however. Some washers between the body and tunnel brace and boom. Should solve the problem. I'll be (secret) busy tonight signing my life away and have some paintwork to do before Wednesday but shoot me a holler and I'll roll by to help you out if needed.

That sound can be disturbing as all get out.

Installed them, but the pipe tends to sag, may need to weld them

Speaking of pipes sagging....

Changed out my mufflers yesterday and lowered the car another inch or so.

I guess there is definitely a point where too low....is too low on these cars.

I'm scraping pennies and paperclips on the highway this morning on the way in. Hehee.

Lawrence took some last night when he rolled by....I'll go shoot some here in a sec.

I think he was able to get 3 fingers between my splitter and the ground. LOL Looks great...dunno what my scrape blocks will look like though.
