Warning: When working on, under, or around any vehicle exercise caution. Please allow the vehicles exhaust system to cool before removal, as exhaust system temperatures can cause severe burns. If working without a lift, always consult vehicle manual for correct lifting specifications. Always wear safety glasses and ensure a safe work area. Serious injury or death could occur if safety measures are not followed.
Step 1: (Carefully read all instructions before installation) Disconnec the vehicles battery before removal of the OEM exhaust. this will allow the computer to reset itself with the new system, and prevent electrical accidents. To remove the OEM exhaust system, unbolt the clamps fastening the muffler inlets to the over axle pipes. Unbolt the muffler hanger brackets from the frame, and remove the mufflers from the vehicle (The brackets will be reused). Do not damage the OEM rubber insulators, as they will be used to mount the new system
Step 2: Remove the OEM hanger brackets from the mufflers and reattach them to the frame of the vehicle. Install the new mufflers by fitting the welded hangers into the rubber insulators in the brackets. Fit the new mufflers to the overaxle pipes using the supplied band clamps. Leave all the clamps and fasteners loose for the final adjustment of the complete system.
Step 3: With all components mounted loosely, adjust the system for overall aesthetics and clearance of frame and bodywork. (MAGNAFLOW recommends at least 1/2" of clearance between the exhaust system and any body panels to prevent heat related body damage or fire).
Step 4: Once a final position has been chosen for the new system, evenly tighten all fasteners from front to rear. The supplied band clamps must be very tight to properly align the pipes and prevent leaks (Approx. 65ft-lbs). Inspect all fasteners after 25-50 miles of operation and retighten if necessary.
I'm pretty certain this is the best shopping experience I've ever had. I found what I wanted on AmericanMuscle.com, then did some price shopping and ended up coming back and order from them because they had the lowest price AND free shipping too. I honestly look forward to spending more money with American Muscle. They have customer submitted photos in addition to their great product photography as well as installation guides from users and manufacturers. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them.
