MBRP exhaust pipe hitting frame??? Ideas how to fix?

Like title states, I have 4" MBRP straight piped and pipe is touching frame right in the first straight section after down pipe.heading back. Makes a loud clang when I hit a bump and I think I'm getting some vibration when I hit accelerator hard as well. Anyone had this happen and have an idea how to fix the problem? Thanks for the help

Cant you take an exhaust strap and bolt it to the frame, then it wont move around? Post a pic of where it is hitting!

Installed a few with never a problem. Try repositioning the pipe.

Loosen the clamps. Place a piece of wood between the pipe and the frame where it's making contact. Tighten clamps. Remove wood.

Or try loosening the clamp for the downpipe and roll/twist the downpipe. This way the other end of the downpipe will be at a different angle. Hopefully not angling towards the frame where its hitting.

You are probably not fully up on the down-pipe or it is slipping down. It is a common problem. Loosen and hit with a soft hammer and reclamp, very tight. If you break the clamp (not likely) or it still slides, mark it and pull them both off, then drill a hole and after it is back on the truck, install the SS screw and reclamp. Another hanger may help.

I never had a problem with exhaust hitting frame but my downpipe would move while offroading and hit pinch weld. I removed exhaust hanger along frame and added a couple washers in there to move hanger off frame a little and bolted hanger back up. No more problems.
