Catalytic Converter

96 ZJ 5.2L :
I need to replace my catalytic converter and my o2 sensors. Ive got the cat and the sensors ordered and on the way. Can anyone give me a run down of other supplies/tools I should have before tackling the job. This is my first experience removing/installing a cat and o2 sensors.

Hey all... Yes I have clamps and hangers, and access to a welder/saw. I just wasn't sure if I'd need anything else. As far as the o2 socket goes, would an open ended wrench be too much of a pain?

Suck.

They pinch and distort the pipe and fail to hold. May be cheaper than welding it if you dont have the means though

It may slip. Those Sensors tend to "weld" themselves in sometimes

If your getting a new cat and a new o2 taking it out of the old cat is pointless unless your refering to the up stream o2 and in that case its always best to use the right socket. Don't try a 12 point wrench it will strip out
