Your exhaust pipe exits out under the rear leaf spring. When you install just about any kind of rear lift over 1.5", the exhaust will contact the leaf springs. Easiest thing to do is cut the exhaust pipe either before or after the axle and have it dump straight down.

Yes you can, but your down travel is going to be limited. You need longer shocks to match the additional lift.
