I bought a new walker muffler that is relatively long, similar to the one pictured. With my car on jack stands I am not able to get it up and over the axle without it catching. Is there a common method to installing these mufflers, do I need to remove anything to get it into place?

Thanks

I have not replaced a tailpipe on this model, but on many vehicles that I have entertained, wheel removal (even shock and brake line removal, and axle housing lowering) can be the path to clearing interference issues.

We can't be there for a better eye's-on evaluation. :(

You could cut and splice in a coupler, but I definitely don't recommend them as a first line of defense.

One style...




And another (clamp in) type...
