Impreza GC8 Extended exhaust hangars: the determining factor?

Hey guys.

Well I got my 2.25" catback done a few weeks ago, as most of you know. Stromung midpipe and a WRX axleback, installed somewhat correctly by Monro Muffler.

Anyway... I had some rattling at the rear, where the muffler seemed to be tapping on the heat shield, particularly near the hangar. That, plus the whole can seemed to be sitting up higher than my old, stock (well, factory BroSpeed/SPT) system did...

I was previously using standard Kartboy hangars, but ordered up some new ones, direct. The exhaust now obviously sits quite a bit lower. Maybe lower than I thought it would...

Got a look at it from the front of the car this morning while changing my oil, and I'm a bit worried. It seems to dip down quite a lot, and I don't know if it's TOO much for comfort. What do you guys think?

Opinions from those with WRX axlebacks welcome, as well as other exhausts or just otherwise educated opinions.

Maybe try long hanger in the front with short in the back. Or try some combination. Just a thought.

When I got my 2.25" custom midpipe with WRX axleback it sat pretty much in the same place, maybe a little bit higher than stock. Every so often on decelleration I here a thwack or tack sound, but that is still pretty rare.

Mine mostly rattled because the tech had pushed the axleback rearward about an inch, to "help accomodate the differential." Good intentioned, but really I didn't see any clearance issues, so I had another fellow push it back, when I returned to have them swap hangars....

...and to relocate a bracket which was banging on the differential, actually. (They had to hack off the flanges on the mid and axleback, and sleeve/bracket them instead. Long story.)

What sucks is they didn't rotate the forward hangar arm on the axleback around, so it's not attached to anything. Seems pretty solid but I guess that ticks me off a bit.
