Trubendz exhaust

So last night i bought my Trubendz exhaust and flex pipe im just so excited =)

But as far as install it looks strait forward, should i replace my exhaust bushings while im at it or should they still be good? i have 115k on the car but not sure on how long they last or have been changed already? Or is it something i change when it breaks?

Yeah so i got the 2.5" bolra and 2.5 flexpipe

Nice to hear you got it on the way, if it looks like you should replace it then replace it.

I only ever replaced exhaust hangers when they break. But that is not very common.

I wouldn't worry about replacing the hangers unless it looks like they need it. They will work just fine with the new exhaust.

It all depends on how you think it looks, My wagon has the original exhaust on there with 160k on it and only the resonator hanger broke, but the rest are very much due. But like my girls zx3 at 100k the rear hanger broke and the one over the axle broke and I had to make a bracket until we got the Trubenz exhaust there.

This is the wagon hanger right after the flew pipe. It is due for a new exhaust.

That looks factory new compared to my wagon. 02 with 172.5K right now. Mine rotting out from under me.


Last I heard of truebenbz (a few years ago) is that they are a decent system. Good luck with it.

^^^thats my only dislike to them too. im waiting for the day the welds break loose. just to let u now i have the same setup but i have a custom 2.5 flex because it was cheaper and i can weld and i have a long header. i got so many compliments with this setup. if u have a long header get a resonator unless u like loud. ive gotten beeped at while at WOT going under a an overpass lol. but ive have it for about 3+ years and no probs.
