I think you are trying to say the bolts are rusted and you can't get them off.
Well go to a Home Depo or Lowes and get this spray stuff and it'll come right out. Can't remember what it's called just tell an employee that you got a rusted screw that you can't budge. Or get a longer wrench. Don't know about the "rubber hangers"

ok so what cat back do you have and are you replacing your flex too?

yea...why r you removing those bolts?...that will just cause more problems for u...the focus cat-back is literally a flex-pipe back...leave that stuff alone.
