Superlift install problem - Please help

While installing the Superlift kit, have any of you encountered a similar issue to the one I'm about to describe? Everything was going well with the install up until yesterday. After the Superlift front differential brackets were installed (properly I assume) I reinstalled the differential and once everything was buttoned up, I directed my attention to the front driveshaft. In an attempt to reconnect it to the front driveshaft, I discovered that the front differential appears to be approximately 3/4 of an inch too low for the driveshaft to reconnect to the differential. The driveshaft appears to be obstructed by the left exhaust pipe running across the center of the truck to where it meets with the right side (passenger) exhaust pipe. After review of the attached photos can any of you please inform me if you can identify if something was done improperly during the installation? My understanding is that Superlift is a retrofitted kit, not requiring any modifications.
Thank you,

Ahh Yes, you have a 2007 or newer truck. Ford changed the exhaust in 2007. You have 2 options. Heat the pipe and make the indent larger to get your extra room. Or cut and reroute the pipe.
