Air bags and exhaust

Does anybody have any suggestions/experience of exhaust systems that will work with Air Lift bags on my 08 tuck? I have a full delete system with a diamond eye 4" with no muffler from down pipe back and with the passenger side air bag installed, the mandrel bent pipe going over the axel is too close to the frame hence the air bag can't be installed. I've called diamond eye and to no avail on how to nor do they have a pipe to clear the bag. There are no shops that I can find with a 4" die to bend custom pipe. There is more then enough room over the axel to fix the problem just need a exhaust system that will give me the room. Sorry for the lengthily explanation. Any thoughts, remedies,experiences would be appreciated. Thanks

Inside, got a very good deal at summit. Allowed me to get the dual pressure gauges and compressor for about the same price. Probably why I'm having the trouble!

thats why I don't like the inside mounts to many things can get in the way

I did some research and found the outside mounts and with some summit bucks I was able to come out not too bad to exchange the ones I have and get the outside mounted. will see how this ends up?

I've got 5" exhaust on my truck and just installed the air lift bags that go inside the frame. No issues at all. I'm not sure what kind of exhaust it is. I had the shop put it on when they did the motor.

They must have custom bent or welded the pipe. Good it worked for you! Gotta have the bags when your pullin a 5er toy hauler makes it nicer . That's why I'm putting then on.

That's why I put mine on. Just bought a 40' toy hauler. Are you monitoring EOT and ECT while towing it? I'm thinking about adding some aftermarket parts to keep all my temps down.
