    lol, was thinking that it might be the exhaust pipe, (the one that goes from front to back) as it looks a tad bit droopy, is there somekind of clips that clip it higher, so it dont scratch??

    depends on the actual exhaust, if its an aftermarket or custom job it may not be possible to raise it up due to the shape of it. If its a standard one then I can't see it would be "droopy" as you put it, unless its fallen off its hangars. best bet is to get it on a ramp (or on some axle stands at least) and take a torch underneath to have a look.
