Exhaust

Is there any way to install a catback exhaust without cutting the original out?

Do you mean to get them over the axle? If so, just drop the axle and let it hang on the trailing arms.

Re: Exhaust

Yes, you can remove the factory catback. Jack the car up high enough or put on a lift and remove from the hangers after removing the bolts to the midpipe.

I usually use a long screw driver or Prybar to remove the exhaust from the rubbers from the hanger.

Same here spec my borlas nipples are huge lol.(felt funny saying that) I used some pb blaster and hand strength but the one I used a pair of A medium size pair of channel locks and squeezed them on putting one part of the chennel head on the rubber hanger then the other on the bend of the nipple hanger works great

How do you get the cat-axle pipe over the axle without putting it on a lift?
