Default Need Help Installing Roush A/B

Just got the exhaust today and so far my car is backed on a ramp. I have successfully loosen the clamp and removed the single hanger near the rear. Now im trying to push the front two hanger off but the mid pipe its in the way! How do i get mid pipe out of the way so i can push exhaust hangers off?
I read many people did it without loosen or remove mid pipe, how?

You have to remove the bolt directly above the muffler too. A ratcheting box-end works great.

in all honesty with removing the bracket above it and putting it back on I can change the mufflers out in under 30 minutes with just non-powered hand tools and a jack. don't let it intimidate you. OEM mufflers and GT500 mufflers suck since they are so big, but when i finally switched to borlas it was such an easy job.

Diva is right. Took a half hour to 45 minutes to put on the outlaws. Not a big deal at all.

lol i spent about 2 hours try to push the last 2 hangers out but damn mid pipe is in the way. I wanted to loosen that mid pipe but being on a rhino ramp gives me no clearance to do so. Also thought about removing the bracket but read from so many that it can be done without removing it. I guess when im off on sunday i can try again and take that braket off.

i just look under this morning again. It seems even with tip if exhaust pushed down, i still cant access the bolt thats directly above the exhaust.Theres plastic same height as the bolt and makes it hard for wrench work.
