Default Stock Exhaust Size??...Deleting OEM Resonator And Adding Magnaflow

Searched for a while and didn't find a for sure answer. Is the stock exhaust piping after the y-pipe 2.25" or 2.5"?
Just installed Progress springs and KYBs and the huge ass whale resonator hangs too low and is giving me some clearance issues on speed bumps. Wanting to cut the resonator out and install a Magnaflow resonator to help give me some more clearance but still keep the exhaust quiet. If the exhaust is 2.5", I'm gonna go with the Magnaflow 10436:
MagnaFlow Exhaust Products - For Trucks, Suv's, American Muscle, Diesel, & Sport Compact Vehicles
If exhaust is 2.25", I'm gonna go with: MagnaFlow Exhaust Products - For Trucks, Suv's, American Muscle, Diesel, & Sport Compact Vehicles
Thanks for the help, any other guidance or tips would be great.

2.25. I delted mine and just added a straight pipe when I had it. It didn't get loud at all.

The one on the right

Thanx for the info everyone, love the fast replys.
I guess just putting a straight pipe on there is the cheaper route. I will be trying this first to save some bucks and see if I like the sound. Big help!

Got the straight pipe put on. Car doesn't sound any louder in the cabin, but sounds just a little bit louder out side the car just at idle. Got the resonator cut off and straight put on for $45. Well worth the money to get extra clearance for me.
