With a lift it should be easy. One of the passenger side bolts on the manifold and the driver o2 sensor will give a good fight, other than that it's pretty easy.

IMO, the hardest part was unplugging the drivers side O2 sensor. On the passenger side, at the manifold, it sucked having a loose universal joint socket extension. Every time you would get the socket over to the nuts, gravity would make my socket drop and point down. Not a show stopper, just a PITA. When putting on the o/r mid pipe, I found it easier to start the end toward the back of the car first, then connect to the manifolds. After a few days, I would jack it up and make sure everything is still tight. Good luck and let us know how it goes. :good:

Don't forget to unplug the battery, it would be easy and very unfortunate if you got against the starter while you're under there. Pb blaster all
The bolts, then start from the back and work your way up. Pretty much what the others posted. Good luck and enjoy the new exhaust!
