When I did my exhaust the first time after the SAS (from the collector back), it was around 1/4" from a heat shield bolt/stud. When I got bound up, I could feel it barely touching/vibrating against the tip of the bolt/stud. I ended up redoing the exhaust for the doubler and made sure to stay at least 1/2"-3/4" away from frame/body.
I imagine the exhaust coming off the collector moves around the same amount as a transfer case. As such, I'd leave at least 1/2", maybe 3/4" clearance just to be safe. Don't want to have to do the work twice! Since I shaved the 'foot' off my 205, it's inches away from the body - so the exhaust is still the closest thing.
