Exhaust System Installation 1. Using the original clamps, place your new exhaust system into position as shown in figure 5. 2. Using the original hardware install the hangers into the factory brackets as the one shown in figure 6, and secure the large bracket to the differential. Hand tighten all the hardware for now. 3. Check your exhaust system for proper clearance under the vehicle and also for tip alignment. 4. Once position has been determined to be correct, tighten the clamps to 32-35 ft. lbs. Tighten all the brackets to 18-22 ft. lbs. 6. Before starting your vehicle, make sure to check all wires, hoses, brake lines, body parts and tires for safe clearance from the exhaust system. 7. Start vehicle and check for any leaks. If any leaks are found, determine cause (such as loose or incorrectly positioned clamp) and repair as necessary.
