    do you have pics? I am confused as to why you would have clearance issues especially on a 2g GST to 2g GST exhaust, should be direct bolt on...

    Sounds like you got an AWD exhaust. Pics as mentioned would help.

    As Tyeler mentioned, it's possible the exhaust you bought is for an AWD, not a FWD. Photos would make it easy to tell.

    I believe the thermals are designed to go under the subframe
