ReAr shackle flip where to put exhaust?

I flipped shackles on the rear springs to get some lift without blocks. Now my springs are to low to mount my 5" tailpipe. I'm not a real fan of stacks. Curious on anyone's thoughts if I run the exhaust to the outside of the frame rail up and over front spring mount right alongside frame then go down behind rear helper spring mount to stock location. Probly hard to picture, but picture the back of rear spring 8" lower and both helper spring mounts are about flush to bottom of frame. I can probly make it work. The pipe would end up being about 6 to 8 inches Away from inside of tire. Anybody think that will cause issues?

I really want to get it up tight to the bottom of box. I will be plowing with the truck, and after 12 hours of living in the truck going back and forth you start to get really bored. Then fight that with seeing how fast you can go, and before you know it your backed into to a snow bank with a broken tailpipe. I'm probly just going to end up making it exit in front of tire.
