I would reccomend having a shop install the system. The price is right and the sound is not obnoxious and it is mandrel bent (most shops can't do mandrel bent) and I think the car runs considerably lower RPM's on the road so I'm excited to see if my mileage improved.
Its expected with this system. Plus it sucks not doing it with a lift. Things that helped me a lot.

- i pre assembled the system before mounting it, that way i had and idea, since i had trouble putting the connecting pieces together i sanded the male parts with 400, then soaked them in wd-40 and pb blaster. They went in pretty smooth. As for the tip sticking put, i put the axle back part further in but not enough to make the rear hanger not effective. The tip sits pretty good for my taste
