Default WRX with Subaru hitch. What are my exhaust options?

My WRX has a hitch on the back and I wanted to upgrade my exhaust system. What exhaust do you have with factory hitch? Do I have any install options if I go with an exhaust that will not clear the hitch? (Different exhaust hangers?) I am leaning towards the HKS titanium right now, mainly because their is a good local deal on a used one, but if it won't fit there is no point in pursuing it.

Thanks

I have a TurboXS turbo back with a hitch from...oh crap, I forget the name...someplace in Florida. Anyway, I have the single tip exhaust and the tip was barely touching the hitch, causing some rattling. I made a 'cookie' out of silicon calk and wedged it between the top of the exhaust tip and the underside of the hitch. Basically, the 'cookie' was a disc of silicon about 3/8ths inch thick by about two inches in diameter.

The exhaust uses the factory hangers. Slightly longer hangers would have solved the problem, but I didn't have the energy to track them down.

Keep in mind that the factory hitch really has a LOT of clearance under it...

Hey to ALL,

I have the Brullen 3.5" duel tip exhaust on my WRX and it rubbed my hitch quite a bit but I came up with a great way to get rid of the noise.

I went to the hardware store and bought some furniture sliders that screw on to the bottom of table or chair legs and screwed them into the hitch where is was rubbing. I had to drill a pilot hole then I just used some self-taping screws to secure them to the hitch. They are light blue and black in color! You cannot even see them unless you get down eye level with the exhaust!!

Later Super.
