Exhaust Replacement

Hey guys,

My after market tail pipe rusted off of my after market Thrush muffler (Upstate NY Salty Winter Roads). My best option for the fix is to replace the exhaust system from after the catalytic converter and back. I REALLY hate the look and sound of the OEM muffler but I'm not an expert in exhaust systems and brands.

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a durable direct fit brand or system with a nice tone. I'm also on a tight budget.



Also, is there a tutorial on how to remove the exhaust?

Thanks!

if you don't want to cut the exhaust you have to drop the entire rear suspension to get the stock exhaust out.

Cutting it shouldn't be a problem.
