do I need to modify my exhaust when installing longer shackles?
I was looking at my stock shackles and it looks like longer shackles might hit the exhaust, does anyone know if modification of the exhaust is neccessary for longer shackles?
I have RE boomerang's and had to cut the last foot or so off.

I have the RE 1.75" extended shackles and it's close to my shackle, but haven't had problems yet. Depends on the brand of shackle.

I had to tweak the rear hanger for my Dynomax to clear my MJ shackles......just clears, but doesnt hit.
My teraflex shackles slightly rubbed, (on new 2.5" exhaust) so I heated it and just pulled it over 1/4". no more noise. Good Luck
