Roush axle back install

Would you all recommend bolting it on myself or having an exhaust company weld it on the right way? I've heard the install is easy, but I just wanted to see what you all would recommend. My local exhaust shop wants $150 just to weld it on :/

Just bolt em up it might be a bit tough to get the stock ones off but just use some oil,grease,or WD40 on the hangers and push em off. Simple bolt on only takes an hour.

I'd recommend doing it yourself. The install is super easy and straight forward. The hardest part, as mentioned above, is getting the stock ones off but just takes some grease and dedication.

If your exhaust shop is recommending weld then I would walk away. They don't even know what they are talking about. These simply bolt-on. Should only take them about 20-30 minutes.

They said welding is a much better option because it's more secure and won't rattle. I'd much rather put them on myself.

I disagree. Do not use this shop. The NORMA Ball coupler is designed to be leak free and will not rattle apart. This is a great design and will allow you to swap mufflers in the future

Yep! I totally agree with everyone, NO WELDING!!! Why would you even consider that anyhow, it is a BOLT ON system. Also, I would do it yourself if you have a lift or can lift the rear end. I was charged $60 for them to install it. After I watched them do it, I wish I would have done it. My car only had about 1000 miles on it so the stock exhaust just really came off with no problem. Good luck, they sound amazing!!!

I had mine done and back on the road in 45 minutes. Best sounding ABs I've heard.

Don't you guys think $500 is too much for an axle back? Is it worth the money what you get? Anyone tried to delete the mufflers and put 2 simple pipes in place?

Once I get mine tuned and can turn the o2 sensors off I'm having custom 3 inch piping from the header back. I know a guy who does an amazing job at welding and is going to do it for the cost of the ss piping.

yes I would say its worth it. I mean your not going to get 20hp out of it or anything major hp gain, but the sound itself just makes your car sound WAAAAYYY different! My wife says she can hear me when Im 2 block away! if you have bothersome neighbors, dont do it!

I bought the Roush axle backs from AM and the shop charged me 90$. Also it is all bolt on no welding required.

Roush axle back install

Agree with others, I did the DIY bolt on and it was a snap. Don't be tempted to skip the step where you loosen the front/H pipe clamps. I tried it by skipping that step at first (per some YouTube video) and spent a lot more time cursing than was necessary. A little WD-40 really helps get the hangers out of and in to the rubber things.
