Exhaust Clearance

Guys running four links in your 65-67, show me how you've tackled the interference problem. My panhard bar is leaving me little room to run the exhaust from the mufflers back out to the stock location. I'd rather not run it out the side if avoidable.

Thanks

That is exactly why I did not use the four link set up when doing my resto modded 70 fastback because I could not see any easy way to get the exhaust over the axle and out to the stock location. Maybe someone will chime in and show us how.

Under the axle, side exit, or dump before the axle are probably going to be your only options.

I dump right before the axle with turn downs. No issues with exhaust smell etc...

I've seen fellas run it under the rear axle housing with success.

Turn downs....it makes it louder too....some people think of that as a feature....not me personally....but some do.

Here's my 2.5" exhaust with a torque arm and a panhard bar. It should be the same with a parallel 4 link. Triangulated 4 link might be tougher, but then you probably wouldn't use a panhard bar due to binding.

Dr.Stang,
Do you have a rear shot of your car? I'm concerned about droan coming into the cab using turn downs.

You can kind of see the brake line at the top of this picture. Plenty of room and no problems. As the suspension compresses, it moves away from the exhaust. I've been driving with it for ~3 years.

Campindog,

Thanks for your input. What are you hanging the tailpipes from? Near the valance?

They turn down at the valance. Regular ol hangers attached to the frame with insulators. Plenty of room w/o leaf springs.
