Loosen the clamp shown in figure 1 located just ahead the front muffler. 2. Lubricate all the hangers and rubber isolators as the one. 3. Using a muffler stand or an additional person to hold the exhaust system in position, remove all the hangers from the rubber isolators and remove the exhaust assembly from the vehicle.

Do Not tighten the clamp. 2. Place a clamp over the expanded end of the rear muffler assembly and set it into position. Do Not tighten the clamps. 5. Check your exhaust system for proper clearance under the vehicle and also for tip alignment. 6. Once position has been determined to be correct, tighten the Ac-cuseal™ clamps to 32-35 ft. lbs. making sure the clamp opening is not over any of the notches in the pipe. 7. Before starting your vehicle, make sure to check all wires, hoses, brake lines, body parts and tires for safe clearance from the ex-haust system. 8. Start vehicle and check for any leaks.
