    Got my shackel flip put in RIGHT this time. And my exhuast cutouts and dual stabalizer. It rides so much smoother. Heaven't heard the exhuast but i hope it sounds good. But the cutouts behind the cat. So when my pipes cool down from driving home im gunna undo the plates and hear it roar lol.
    Thanks guys for the info and help about the shacekl flip

    did you fix it right yourself or did you take it back to the shop that screwed it up and make them fix it right?

    yea im curious to what that shop thought about it when you brought it back to them. Is this shop for imports or something? anyone who calls themself a mechanic should know, that with out that shackle in there, theres gonna be problems.
