Question AEV Hemi Exhaust & Rear Sway Bar Question

I have noticed that the rear portion of the Hemi exhaust is in contact with the rear sway bar. Would this cause any issues concerning movement/clearance? Would there be any damage incurred to either part down the line? Here's a pic of what I'm talking about. Its a pic from DSY's build as I couldn't take an illustrative picture on my rig. Comments and input appreciated! Thx!

Well I have this on my rig, exactly like the picture. The two are in contact, big time! Tried adjusting the exhaust fit, managed to clear it by a couple of mm, but after a while the exhaust settles back to that postion.

i'd bet you need to loosen the clamp on the muffler and rotate the tail pipe clockwise (relative to the view in the pic) a few degrees. that should lower that tail pipe enough to clear that sway bar.

Tried that, and it clears just by a tiny bit. BUT, after a while it comes back to that position, the exhaust hangers that hold that portion of the pipe are very firm and are kinda forcing the pipe into that position. The hangers contribute the most to that position. Very annoying. I know I could create/add a dimple in the pipe but I was wondering if its normal or not and would cause issues if I let it be.

No not at all, its laying firm on the bar and pipe by itself is very sturdy and very hard to budge
