Axleback install on jack stands

I'm going to be installing the borla atak axlebacks tonight, but I only have one jack stand. Is it ok to just jack one side up at a time?

Under the axle close to the wheel. Make sure to chock your wheels so she can't roll.

Ok, Amy tips on installing the axlebacks? We are attempting to do it with jacks at the moment. We got everything but the innermost hanger off and can't seem to get it loose

Please tell me you're not under a car that's only supported by a jack (vs. a jack stand)! I once saw a guy doing an oil change on a Jeep with thing supported by a single jack under the transmission...he's lucky he didn't get his head squashed like a grape.

Try sliding the front hangers into place first then position connectors together then finally the rear hanger, adjust and tighten clamp.

I used silicone spray on the hangers and that helped a lot.

i actually used dish soap, as per Vig's suggestion. worked well, they slid in easily. only thing that sucked was drying it off once it was in the hanger....i had to wait for it to dry because it kept sliding around lmao.

That is a better idea since the silicone spray would be there for a while. Glad you got it to work.

Would it be dangerous to drive with one stock and one atak axleback installed? I can't install the other one until tomorrow

I did my axel backs by lying on my back on a towel in a Parking lot lifting will give you more room but I'd say isn't essential, I would suggest it though maybe check to make sure your underbody is in good condition (no leaking differential case) but I'd say keep the stock just incase you sell the car you'll want to swap them before a sale
Also you can sell them I sold them on here apparently the manual axel backs have better flow than auto?
Also if you wreck your car and total it you will want to swap the stock back on to sell the aftermarket ones

Won't hurt the car at all. May just sound a little weird.

I must have been doing something wrong Bc it took forever to get the stick axleback out and get the new one in.

It's way easier to unbolt the hangers and take them down with the mufflers. Then you swap the hangers over to the new mufflers and bolt it all back together. If you have a 13mm gear wrench you are golden.

That's what I ended up doing. I was using a 13mm ratchet. The problem was, when I went to put it back in place with the new axleback, it was hard to fit the ratchet in there to tighten up the bolts

Hahahahhahahahahahaha also, the single hangar closest to the tip is barely in the rubber thing at all. I guess that's how it's supposed to be

There is some play based on the over the axle pipes but for the most part that's how they should look. I also have ataks but mine are obviously for the 5.0 looks about the same

If you end up doing the boss/CS diffuser it will give them a little more depth I think

Try loosen the clamp enough to allow you to move the pipe up a bit, prop it a bit further than need be, to allow for spring back and retighten clamp.

You need to loosen it and then adjust and re-tighten.


Also, go to the local autozone or wal mart or get on amazon or whatever and buy a set of ramps. If you do ANY maintenance at all on your car they are pretty much a required item.

Ramps are a must. I'm cheap, so I use a stack of 2x10s with the short edge cut on a bevel so it's easy to drive up. The cull lumber section of your local home center is your friend.

Yep I'm going to be making my own "long ramps" for driving up onto when this 2000 is done. I'm sick of having to carefully line up a pair of 1x8s on the ramps I have and hope they don't move as I drive up.
