Exhaust rattaling on Shakle Bolt

I just installed a banks monster cat-back and the tailpipe is hitting the rear shackle bolt. Dose anyone have any suggestions on either shifting the tailpipe or somehow protecting it? I was thinking maybe wrapping that section in exhaust wrap.

Re: Exhaust rattaling on Shakle Bolt

Is there any reason why I can't just change the shackle bolt from facing in to facing out?

That is what I did to my XJ.
Pay attention to the length of the bolt that ir do not hit the fuel tank or guard.
