I ordered my HKS cat back last week, and will probably get it next week.[thumb] Has anyone installed the HKS themselves? I plan to do it myself and was wondeg how hard it was, and what tools are needed. Thanx

tools needs, some power lube or other various lubricators for the rusted bolts, hacksaw or some sort of saw, grinder to cut the exhaust and simple hand tools like socket and rachet

I'm also thinkin about getting the Eibach sportline springs, which lowers 2in front, and 2.25 in back. Will this cause a problem with scraping the HKS exhaust?

If you don't want to wait on the order, you can always cancel and try nopionline.com as dudeman said above. Haven't ever bought from them but that's where a friend of mine gets everything for his Protege. He's never had any kind of problem with them.

I got it for $443.99 shipped from streetstyler.com, I think id rather wait than spend the extra money. Also they said that most HKS parts for any car are on backorder, so im not the only one waiting.

I have sprint springs for a 1.8" drop and my exhaust piping sits real low but I never scrape. If you increase that to 2.25" I would be prepared for it to scrape on dips and stuff, Id be careful since it runs under the axle

If you could get a Thermal I'd get that even though it's freakin expensive.
