I didn't remove them when I installed the roush axle backs and it wasn't that hard but I did that last night to reinstall the stock mufflers and it was so much easier to get them back on. I tried to install the stocks without removing the hangers on the drivers side and I just can't see how you can get them on without removing them. Getting that bolt in the hole and starting the thread on the bolt between muffler and hanger was a little hard but it just took a little bit of patience.

Pro tip: put a piece of toolbox liner or even a layer of sand or kitty litter between the boards to keep them from slipping as you drive up.

Yeah that is way too much work. I may just say "**** it" and pay the $5 per hour lift fee on base and do all my Mustang maintenance that way.

It isn't much work at all...takes me longer to drive onto the ramps than set them up, but to reach his/her own.

if it's from a manual you MAY get some $ for it. I sold mine to Vig, he kept it for a year and sold it to someone else. It has to be local or the shipping will kill ya. There is a differance between the MT & AT mufflers.

ya got to price it low. the real value is if you sell your aftermarket ones if you trade it in and put the oem's back on.

That's best for heavy duty maintenance it was $8 an hour where I'm at. But when I installed headers and X pipe it took me 6 hours so it was $48 instead of close to $600 if a shop would even do it

to hold the boards together? If so that is what I did.....simple I used free wood. Super strong the only draw back is they are HEAVY!

Good thing you said "to hold boards together" someone might think it's for traction. What flat?

Hey, can you post a video of how they sound when you finish? I want to get axle backs but still can't decide on which one's.

Honestly you really don't need to jack the car up to get axle backs installed. I've taken mine off countless time with mine being lowered a solid 2.5+ in the rear
