Exhaust clearance question

I have a 4" TB Silverline exhaust and noticed that my downpipe is hitting one of the tranny cooler lines. There seems to be tension on the exhaust and not sure how to adjust it. I thought about taking the downpipe clamp loose and removing the clamp that connects it to the cat delete pipe the using an adjustable band wrench and trying to twist the pipe. Do you guys think that will work? Any other ideas?

when i did mine, that extra pipe between the cat delete and the muffler, was too long, so i took that out and cut it down and the downpipe stopped hitting whatever it was hitting. That extra pipe was just a few inches to long to fit nice.

I will check that tomorrow. It has just done it in the last 5,000 miles because I check everything when I change the oil. Thanks for the advice.

My DP was close to hitting the trans cooler line so it took a piece of the old DP heat foil and put it between the line and strapped it to the DP with hose clamps

could it be one of the pipes underneath rotated and is pulling the pipe against the trans lines? I havent been underneath my 6.0 as much as I was my 7.3 so I dont know how the clearances are, but the 6.0 seems to have alot of bends in th stock DP vs the 7.3s.

Not sure. The exhaust hangs on the factory hangers. The DP isn't stock though so there isn't as much room.
