NOTE: Neewbie Here
Quick question: Exhaust installation. How should I jack the car up to make it easiest to install? I have a great jack, jack stands, and ramps, but not sure what will give me the best/enough clearance.

I was thinking of putting the ramps in the back of the car, and backing onto them. Has anyone installed exhaust that way?

I am very safe, so I'll have backups for what ever I do, but just loking for some advice here.

THanx ahead of time for the response.

THis group rocks.

your plan sounds solid enough to me.. just make sure that after you get up on the ramps, you put jack stands under the car for extra safety.

The IRS Cobra's are much easier to do a catback on that the Live Axle ones since the tubing goes under everything instead of over the axle.

Sitting on ramps what let you have enough room between the bottom of the car and the rearend to pull out the tailpipes.

UNLESS, you are cutting them out and the new system is in small enough pieces.

I just ordered a MagnaFlow system for mine this morning and 3 1/2" rolled tips this morning.:bounce:
Im fed-up with these Flowmasters.

99+ IRS equiped Cobra's Catbacks do no go over the Axle, they are flat and go under the rear end... :)
