    Just received my Stromung axleback

    I have a 2005 WRX wagon with 1100 miles on it. I need to know how do I install it? I 've planned out the install and I just have a few questions.

    1. Do I need to raise the car? I can fit under the car without a problem. I dont have ramps or jackstands. Im thinking that it isnt necessary.

    2.How do I get the hangers off? Do they just pry off? Do I pry them off of the stock exhaust hanger or off of the hangers mounted to the frame of the car.

    3. Should I use the stock gasket that is currently on the car or should I use the new one that I got from stromung. Also I got new bolts from Stromung. Im taking for granted that I need to use them.

    Thanks in advance for the help..

    Nice choice on the exhaust. As far as installalation goes, its an easy task. I also installed a stromung cat back on my car. It took me and a friend about 20 minutes. Make sure you take the time to safely jack up the rear of the car. You can pick up a jack and stands for like 40.00 at pepboys and other similar places. Their sh*tty but I still trust them. It definitely makes life allot easier if you plan on working on the car. If you have a hard time with the hangers use a little dish washing soap. They will slide off the car.

    WRX05 :
    Congrats!
    2.5" or 3"?
    www.spdusa.com suggests use 2.5".
    I might get 2.5" for my 04 WRX.

    Happy raving!
