Anyone else had problems with Magnaflow exhuast hitting DSS one-piece?

When I did my cam swap I also installed kooks headers and magnaflow cat back exhaust. The problem is the mufflers were hitting my driveshaft. I stopped at autozone and found a rubber hanger that was a little longer so it would drop down but it still hits on a hard launch or when I take a hard turn. Anybody delt with this issue?

There are hard rubber hangers i purchased from summit to prevent this from happening. I'll look for the part #.

Also, the more hangars you use, the better. At least 3.

I built a custom 3" dual into a 4" outlet that ran into a single $' Magnaflow. I have the GForce CF DS adn it was rubbing slightly on the muffler. I marked the area on the muffler and used a hammer to fix that issue. I dented it in about a Half inch or so, no problems since.
