Does anyone have air ride with a 3" exhaust and have rubbing issues on the right rear side? Had a K-Sport Executive kit installed on an Si coupe and not even 150 miles later the bag blew while driving. The installer had wrapped the exhaust with heat tape and said it had clearance but clearly not enough. It rubbed right through the bag. Also when I pulled the wheel and looked the bag actually unseated itself as well. does anyone also know if the airbags should be surrounded by those rubber spacers on either side of the oem springs? They only installed the lower not upper. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ive reached out to K-sport and Air Lift waiting for a response as well.

It is common for normal coilovers to rub on a 3" exhaust so I'm not surprised to hear that the air suspension is too. I never had a problem with my 3" exhaust and oem springs but the aftermarket adjustable coilover was a much larger diameter and rubbed the axle back a lot.
