According to autozone the above parts are OEM fit which I understood to mean they should fit with any issues...Unfortunately for me the tailpipe and both ends of the exhaust pipe are 2 1/4" meaning the tailpipe doesn't slip over the muffler or vice versa. On the cat side I have the same problem...the muffler and cat have the same diameter hole and thus I cannot slip the cat over the muffler...Could someone please enlighten me as to how this is supposed to be done? I was under the impression this wasn't welded as the microfiche show clamps holding it on. Is autozones computer simply wrong and these parts are the wrong diameter? Any help is much appreciated!
you could rent a tailpipe expander from autozone to widen the openings just enough to slip on. not sure of the cost but that and a 3/8s rachet is what ya need and when put the clamps use an impact. if ya don't have one available get it has tight as possible and recheck after a couple of days to see if u can tighten it any more. having a connection come loose after a bump and your miles from a store sucks.
