with the muffler in place i found it impossible to do this. i even undid the two metal muffler straps and lowered the muffler a bit to try to get the rubber doughnuts onto the fixed upper hangers but couldn't get then on. they're just too small when they are new.

i have the muffler hanging in place by a metal cord right now attached to the fixed hangers, with no rubber hangers at all, the old ones split. i'm obviously not gonna do any unnecessary driving for fear that the cord will come unhinged if i go over a bump.

any ideas? i'm thinking of bringing it into the shop on Monday...what would a thing like this cost.. thanks
