Installing my Flowmaster Axle back

Hey everyone!

I had a quick question for anyone who installed their axle back themselves. What tool did you use to cut the stock exhaust with? I've heard sawzall, grinder and even the chain cutter and was wondering what was easiest with our cars!

Thanks!

I used this with my headers. Simple and straight.

Sawzall will cut through it like butter.

I did my long tubes on jack stands in my garage. Lift would have been nice, but I don't know anyone with one.

Just rent a pipe cutter chain and some wrenches is all you need.

I tried using a grinder when installing my midpipe and axleback it didn't go well the grinder could not reach the top portion of the pipe. If I had to do it over I would use a sawzaw as that worled a million times better when installing headers
