You need a socket to take off the old muffler, pretty sure its a 17mm. There are 2 bolts... Then you need a socket and a wrench for the new one.
I had to use a sawzall because I couldnt drop the whole exhaust in one piece, since it wasnt on a lift. Also I obviously used a jack and jackstands.
It took me about an hour... Pretty simple... they bolt right up. Use some WD40 to get the rubber hangers out of there.
