There is a bracket at the bottom of the downpipe (you did put that bolt back in, right?) that holds the downpipe in place. You just need to loosen that bolt and slide the downpipe over a little.

I am having the same problem right now. mine is hitting the transmission brace. I am just going to take a hammer to it to try to get some more clearence. probably not the smartest thing to do but it works.
