I've tried that, didn't help last time I did exhaust on the WRX. Pulling Tom's hangars off is more or less impossible.

Are the hangers rusty? I did this several times on my WRX (went to XL hangers then regular length then back to stock) and windex made a huge difference. The one I had the most issues with was the midpipe hanger.

Maybe soapy water will work better?

Might need to wiggle it around to get the liquid inbetween the hanger and the metal rod.

Not hard enough.

My Nameless axleback is actually sitting crooked (right tip sticking out) so I'm going to pickup some more hangars and go poly for all 5 instead of just 2 like I was going to do.

oh yeah...

More parts are due back right now. My driver is headed there after lunch.

Not happy with all the delays either. I'll be sure to have a sale on the first run to make up for it.

I don't care, as long as I can get it before I leave Alaska in May. Since I'll be in California, I might come down and harass you, Tom.
