Teraflex exhaust spacer causing a rattle?

Yesterday I started installing the Teraflex 2.5 inch spring lift on my jku. We got the back done and are having to wait until next weekend to do the front. Anyway, we started with the Teraflex exhaust spacer kit and after we finished, the crossover pipe is 1/8" to 1/4" away from a piece that connects to the transmission skid bar. When driving it around, I am hearing an intermittent rattle from that area. I havent been able to actually see it hit though because I cant exactly get down there while driving.
I've read about EVO skids hitting the pipe, is it normal to have rubbing/rattling with the crossover pipe even without having skids? Is there something else that could be causing the noises?

If it is close to the front bracket that extends forward of the cross member, you can put 1 or 2 washers on it where it connects. I know I had to re tightened the spacer bolts every day for about five days because they would loosen up abit after each heatup/cool down cycle. Now all is good

Me too in reverse when hitting a bump. Sounds funny but it happens when I back into the garage.
