stock exhaust swap - yj

Anyone have any tips for installing a stock exhaust system. Due to the shape I ended up cutting the old one out and so far I've yet to figure out how the new muffler and tail pipe are fed into position. Do I remove the track bar? I already have the drive shaft out to replace the transfer case seal. Thanks. (ps Its a '94 RHD uk model)

The stock exhaust is slip fitted from the cat to the tail pipe. You should just need the clamps and isolators if you are doing a replacement on the cat-back. The tail pipe is a pain, but it can be put in place with the rear trac-bar still installed.

Its the tail pipe thats causing me grief. Its in one part with the muffler attached and doesn't seem to want to be fed into position. At the moment I'm trying from what would be the USA driver side but is this correct and is it just a case of forcing it to go or is there a set position from which it should approach?

Tailpipe goes in US passenger side feed from rear. If you can't get past it drop the track bar.

Exhaust swap.

Track bar dropped, the exhaust went in without hitch. Still cant see how it would go in without the track bar dropped but then again I'm new to this.

if you unload the suspension with a lift it helps alot, plus most people take off the track bars.

If you let the rear droop on jack stands and maybe remove the rear tire will that allow access enough to slip the tailpipe through? I am going to tackle this over the weekend...

You did throw that track bar away when you were finished, right?

Thanks for the tip. I should have used the track bar to beat the exhaust into place.
