midsection of exhaust hitting brace

hey guys!

i recently installed an obx header in conjunction with my fswerks header (too loud) but since then i have been having a problem with the midsection of my exhaust hitting a little cross brace that is basically under the center console in the car. i have adjusted the catback many times and re-tightened it but there just seems too be not enough hangers for the exhaust. i was wondering if anyone had thought of a solution to this problem other than removing the brace. thanks!

Iíll also add in you have to readjust your whole exhaust, then tighten it down. It takes time to to it right. Iíd suggest getting different stiffer exhaust hangers. Cobb makes some for the ST and thatís what helped my stealth exhaust from hitting that brace, along with readjusting my exhaust.
