Magnaflow Scraping? Post here...

I need to know from all you guys with the magnaflow how low your car is and how bad it scrapes.. I think this is the main issue for a lot of people that want to get in on the group buy... i know it's the only thing stopping me, mine is lowered about 1.5. Please post your experiences.... Thanks

Andy

mine is rarely scraping, lowered with h&r sport and 2 12" sub in the trunk, just becareful with the uclamps, move it to the side when installing, and push the exhaust to the top as much as possible when tighten the U clamp, and the exhaust will stay high

Anytime you lower a car you are faced with the possibility of scaping. My car is lowered 2.25 and I scrape like a mother! watch how you drive and you should be fine.

I just talked to John the magnaflowguy and he said it is the U-clamp that is scraping. He said juss to mobe it to the side or something when you get it installed. So i am gonna go for it!!!![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

I am running stock height and mine never scrapes. The only time it does for me is when I am getting off the ferry, but even stock did that.

Mine has never scraped with stock height and I go over large speed bumps, steep inclines, etc. almost every day. I am about to put some Neuspeed Sport springs on so I'll let you know how that works out.

Mine scrapes over every speed bump, and it's stock height. Also, when I park my car on top of the hill just before the decline, my pipe is only 1 inch from the ground. U-Clamps doing the scraping? I don't think so.

anyone else?? i can imagine that if people are scraping with stock height, i don't think lowered ones will favor much better... So in many cases, it can be the U-Clamp scraping but in many cases, it's the actual muffler.. right?

Well, there is obviously some installation differences if some scrape all the time with stock height and some of us don't even come close to scraping, especially with stock height. I would talk to MagnaflowGuy. He has always said that if you are having problems with the product to let him know. I am stock and haven't scraped one time. To get to my house I have to drive over three huge speed bumps and my driveway is a steep incline, not a single problem.

If you don't think it is just the U-bolts scraping, all you have to do is look under the car and see.
