Flowmaster High Flow Muffler Inlet/Outlet Pipes

I bought a Flowmaster high flow muffler for my 3.8 but when I went to install it I noticed that the stock muffler is welded to a piece that connects to the headers on one end and on the other end goes all the way to the end of the exhaust. The Flowmaster on the other hand is just the muffler itself without any other parts on it.
In other words I cant just swap out the mufflers without having the two pieces that connect to the stock muffler seperatly and installing them with the flowmaster.
Does anyone know where I can get these two parts???

In the case of my 06 Mustang, the muffler shop welds to rods to each side of the new muffler in the place of the bracket that you are talking about. Most aftermarket mufflers will require some tweaking and add-ons to make them work right. Hope this helps

Are your pipes rusted through, or something? I don't understand the problem . ..

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

I don't think he realizes that he needs to weld the mufflers into the stock pipes...

Take your car and mufflers to a muffler shop...ask them to swap out the stock mufflers with ur flowmasters...they will cut the old one's out...weld in the new ones...and give you the old ones just in case you want them for something like a paperweight...bases for the street kick ball game...canteens...stepping stones in your garden...very hard throw pillows...anything you want really
