New exhaust

Post by Mal » Thu Oct 29, 2015 7:32 am

I am about to replace the exhaust on the car.
Since the tail pipes go under the rear axle, How much clearance do I need. I can go by the old system but I would like to have it closer if possible
Just wondering what clearance others have.

Cheers Mal

Jack up the car at the rear allowing the wheels to fully drop. Then measure the lowest axle position. I would use that as the highest point where the exhaust should run under the axle.
