transfer case drop exhaust problems

my jeep tj has a 4in suspension lift and has a transfer case drop that is a at least an inch, maybe more. the first exhaust hanger is a bolt on bracket mounted on the transmission which has been dropped so it has brought my whole exhaust system down with it. since this mount is bolted on i was wondering if anyone makes a new one or if anyone has fabbed up something i could copy. i dont have the money for a sye kit or else i would just do that and be done with it. i just need a solution for this since it is causing multiple clearance problems

My transfer case/transmission skid plate is raised, but maybe you can get the idea?...

These are the problems i have had because of the mount being lowered from the transfer case drop

Your transfer case drop causes the exhaust "Y" pipe to swing to the left and it then interfaces with the front driveshaft. Installing a MML would help with the exhaust clearance, installing a transfer case lift and relocating the cat hanger would work also... IMO
