Hi. I will (hopefully!) be fitting a new rear pipe/silencer box to an old Suzuki car very shortly. Never done one before so I thought it might be good challenge/experience. Also thought it would be good to ask anyone who has done one before (or indeed does it for a living) whether there are any important things to watch out for or tips/tricks to make life easier.
I gather the first problem may be siezed bolts in the joint between front pipe and rear. I should have new bolts/nuts and gasket so I'm prepared to have to cut/grind them off if necessary. I also understand that the rubber supports can be a bit stubborn too. Would a little squirt of 3 in 1 oil help ease them off/on again or would it deteriorate the rubber? Finally, would the joint (the twin-bolted bracket between front and rear pipe) require any kind of sealant or is the gasket all that is required?
Thanks in advance for any advice and best regards,
