Default Flowmaster Side Exit... Issue?

So, I threw my Flowmaster exhaust on the truck today and ran into a bit of an issue. Had the truck up on the lift and the rear section wouldn't clear the spring at full droop. This could turn into a massive issue down the road. Ended up installing and welding with the truck on the ground. Anyone else run into this?

I now have NO idea how I'm going to rack the stupid thing for other reasons without crushing the exhaust. I might just lop it off and not have a tip. Slightly frustrating. I'll call Flowmaster tomorrow and ask for some explanations.

Not sure if this is what your looking for but this is what I had done on mine. The guy said it took a while to bend it to exit and clear everything. If you need a better pic I can go take one.

That is probably what I'm going to end up having to do. Just think Flowmaster could have made the kit actually fit properly. On the positive side I can have a plain Jane looking outlet now.
