Fix 4 Exhaust Pipe Banging on Rear X-Member

Forgive me if this is obvious or has been suggested before but I haven't run across it.

For whatever reason, the spacing between the exhaust pipe and my '92 FJ80 rear cross member was tight enough to bang when driven on my 3/4 mi gravel driveway.

After confirming that the mounting cushions weren't destroyed, I fashioned some 1/8" spacers which I inserted below each of the two rear mounts (between mount and frame bracket).

This seems to have lifted the muffler and rear pipe just enough to stop the banging. A small victory.
