Default Exhaust Rattle at Low RPM

Ok, so I am going nuts at low RPM's. I have Stainless Works Cat backs on my 2013 GT. They all went on fine no issues, but then I noticed when I would hit a bump the passenger side would bang into the rear valance. Fixed that with a little tack weld, now it vibrates at low rpm and I assume its hitting the axle. Stainless Works cuts really close to it where it comes over the axle. So any idea's on making it stop beyond tack welding more lol?

Typically, clearances can be changed by loosening the various joint clamps and adjusting each section of pipe but it usually takes 2 people to get it right. But if you've welded joints, you're on your own...

Check the hanger bracket also, my exhaust rattles at certain low rpms against the hanger bracket.

As Nuke said and it goes a lot better if you adjust and tighten from back to front.
