I have done the bottom plates in my basement but now I have cut the wood for top plates and I noticed some tubing that runs about half an inch below the floor joists where I was going to connect my top plates. I'm not really sure what to do. Should I go buy some furring strips? If I use furring strips do I need to lower all the top plates even though it is only two walls or top plates that are obstructed by the tubing?

Really need a picture.
In most cases the pipe could be rerouted through the joist, the top plate could be run from two different directions leaving a space where the pipe is.
All depends, could tell better with that picture.
