Your brackets need to rotate to lower the end links enough that the driver's side rod end doesn't hit the over-axle exhaust pipe. Depending on the ride height, you'll have some angle on the arms. So long as the angles are equal and opposite, the system will perform correctly.

Thanks, I have no issues with contacting the exhaust or anything like that...just want to make sure my configuration is correct.

Thanks for all the help guys.
