Banks monster cat back on 95

Has anyone installed this on the YJ? I can't figure it out. SHOULD be an easy bolt-on. Not happening. Tried every combo I can think of with no joy. That track bar about the axle is just in the way. thanks

The track Bar should be in the trash.

Snake the tailpipe into its spot however you can, then bolt up the muffler, then bolt or clamp to the cat.

Not possible. No wiggle room with the track bar in place. Looks like it needs to come out. I've tried per instructions with muffler in first and tried with tailpipe in first. No room to even get close to mate ends. Does anyone know if you do need to lift the axle with a jack to take off spring tension?

I put a new tailpipe on mine a few years ago and while I have no experience with the Banks system I had to jack up the rear end to make it possible to snake it through there. Good luck, Dave

When I installed mine I did it on a lift so it was easier, I think what you can try is lifting the Jeep by the frame and letting the rear axle hang down and slip it in that way.

Well duh on me! I'm sure that could make enough wiggle room. Need to try it tomorrow. Thanks.

Do you have the track bar installed?

OK here was the deal. Brought it to muffler shop. 10 min later they saw that it had a different than stock catalytic converter and stuck back too far. Had to have part of the cat cut and welded to muffler. So it wasn't my error this time.
