Just got the Tanabe Axle back a few weeks back. I love the sound it's nice and deep. One serious problem though for me that is. It sits really low, I can't even go over a speed bump without hearing a clink! It's starting to be frustrating! Uhhhhhh! I just want to know if anyone now where I can buy some hangers to lift it up about another inch. I'd hate to have to take it to a muffler shop, or raise my car...blah! Thanks in advance!

I was worried when I lowered my car it would do that. Let me know if you find out about the hangers. Mine is fine now but my car is stock height.

Sorry to hear that. My Stillen cat-back scrapes too & my V's lowered. I even tied some zip ties on the rear rubber hanger to squeeze it a bit but still it scrapes.

I believe the best way really is to have the muffler shop adjust the hangers through bending them bit (or maybe you can diy it) or relocating the hangers. :(

There's always welding it on instead of using the hangers gives some clearance for lowered cars. I knew a few civic guys that did this when trying to get them flush.

I had to cut and weld my dc catback to get it to not scrap but then it was to high lol and melted my bumper so I just cut a hole on the bumper and now I'm going the cut the tip off it and have a shop extend it.

Guess it has to go to the muffler shop...I want adjustable coilovers in the future...FYI my versa is at stock height...I have the S series so the wheels are 15", I guess if I buy 16" rims that might help a bit, for those of you that are considering the Tanabe and have 15" rims, I hope this info helps. I love this muffler, it sounds incredible, but hangs low...I think before the muffler shop.. I'm going to buy the 16" rims and not lower the car..keep the stock springs, but buy wider tires...if it looks good I'll post some pics.

I know you didn't want to go to the shop, but welding is gonna give you the best clearance.

Agreed. I have the S series also and don't have scraping issues at stock height. Then again I also slow down when approaching raised driveways and speed bumps just to be safe. Best of luck buddy, let me know how it goes.
