2011 Mustang GT-Installing Mangaflow Exhaust

Hey, I plan on getting the following exhaust:
Magnaflow Competition Catback Exhaust (2011 GT) at AmericanMuscle - Free Shipping!

and wanted to know what challenges I would face - as this says it would be a direct bolt on. I can't imaging something being that hard that is a direct bolt on.

I put that on my car a couple weeks ago and it was a piece of cake.

However, I was swapping out springs/shocks/struts at the same time. So I had the springs/shocks off the rearend and left it dropped down. Did the exhaust. Then installed the new springs/shocks. Sure this made it easier for me.

Unless you drop the axle, you cant get the over axle pipes on without a lift. Everything does bolt right on though, no cutting or welding required, and by the way, the magnaflows sound awesome!

To the OP: I would check out planet magnaflow before you buy. I bought my catback from them, and it was significantly less expensive than elsewhere.
