Yeah also gotta make sure you don't hit the passenger side radiator when you remove the passenger side fan according to stillhere..otherwise you'll have some coolant leak

i have installed them and my first reccomendation is to remove the passenger axle and half shaft first and foremost.

i finished the install, it sounds a bit louder but definitely feel the extra power. removing the passenger side fan is a must but the hose that is connected to the radiator is not necessary.

there is no need to remove the passenger axle and half shaft. there is enough room on the top to remove the heat shield and pre-cat. just have to jiggle it a bit to get it out.

^ I agree... the trick is to get the heatshields off before you unbolt the 4 12mm for the precat... glad my instructions could be of help to you... alot of people seem to remove to much when there is enough space to pull it up from the top you know, it kinda makes it an easier do it yourself, cuz me, I am not all gunho about removing and axle and what not, god forbid I dont put it back correctly lol

i guess i should have been the second one to install them not the first scratch that (Richie is the first) haha neway i wish i woulda known about the heat shields but i still would not have been able to get the cat out unless i removed the strut brace. and i figured goin through the bottom would be easiest since i had to remove them once before already and thats how i did it. But thanks for the useful info im glad its easier than wut i did.

The last cat I took off required a plasma cutter.
