Panhard bar interference

Took my deuce on its maiden voyage and all was fine except every now and then I heard a clunk noise (something like a tailpipe hitting the frame). When I inspected the car underneath I saw the panhard bar which is attached to the 9" diff. by a bracket (bolted on). It was barely 1/2" away from the floor and there was evidence of scrapes and dents in the floor. I cannot cut the floor away as it is in front of the rear seat. This is a TCI frame, 9" Ford diff with coil overs and a '32 Ford tudor. Has anyone an alternative or suggestion that I may use to change this problem? Shortening the bracket (bolts to diff.) that the bar bolts to is almost an impossibility as it is very short in height. Mounting the bar in a different position may be the answer, but the coil overs can get in the way. The frame also has a torsion bar that runs from side to side, which is also hooked to the rear end (stabilizer bar?). Suggestions anyone?
