Don't think so mate, what suspension/springs and wheels do you have on?

I have the same issue with my vx ss on SSL's and steelies....looks bad ass at 140kph across the NT...not!

By looking at it I think the exhaust manufacturers all have different measurements...maybe NAAF can answer this.

The off the shelf systems are probably designed for cars at a standard ride height. If you've modified the ride height, you might need to modify the exhaust too.

Might need to get an exhaust shop to look at altering it or get a custom one made up. Had a custom one made up with mine and he lifted it up as high as possible
without it touching anything but with superlow springs its still illegal at 95mm off the ground (thats on a V8 though). Put more air in your tyres, might give u 5mm LOL...)

Another example of a quality X Force system...The issue would be the single hanger on the tail pipes allowing the system to hang lower than it really should.

Different brands will fit the car differently. I do Manta and they sit reasonably high. The pipes on the Manta system run right up close to the control arm. At the very least, some cutting and welding would need to be done to get it to sit higher.
