Installed MBRP 4" turbo back. rubbing issue

I just installed the 4" turbo back on my 05 nad am having some fitment issues with it. I believe the downpipe is rubbing against the body of my truck bc everytime i am making a turn, at slow speeds, i hear some rubbing in that area. Has anyone else experienced that issue?

Also, the factory hangers came with a studded head piece to make it almost impossible to slip out of the rubber hangers. MBRPs has nothing, so I am a little worried that they could slip off on a bouncy ride. I am headed to Pismo, so it will be a rough ride. any suggestions as to how to fix this issue?

This is a common problem with the 4 inch down pipe, that's why most people will opt for the 3 1/2 inch down pipe to 4 inch exhaust, it's rubbing on the cab pinch weld down torwards the bottom. It's a pain, but take the down pipe back off, get yourself some duck bill vicegrips, or whatever you can find and try to bend that out of the way. You'll see it when you look under there.

I will have to do it after my trip to pismo. It is a pain, but is it of major concern? Dangerous, should I worry?

Also, what about the hangers lacking the stud at the end like the factory ones?
