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"

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.

i had to go to meineke and get them to remove the bolts i tryed everything myself from a torch and wd40 to freaking cocacola.. couldnt get it...but after that its a breeze. get a sawzaw so you can cut the exhaust off right before the muffler, cuz you wont be able to get it out... i didnt do flex pipe yet... soon though, im going illegal too with a race header.. all youll need then is a flex then yer done iwht exhaust.

Well I live in California and their emissions laws suck so with a shorty header, cat pipe, flex pipe, and cat-back do you think I could still pass emissions?
