Default Installing GT takeoff muffler

First thing I noticed there are 3 hangers on the stock muffler and 2 on the GT muffler. I guess this wont be too much trouble.

This was my plan for muffler removal: loosen the muffler clamp. unbolt the hangers. pull muffler off pipe. remove rubber hangers from muffler. Then reverse it for installation. Put rubber hangers on GT muffler, put muffler on pipe, bolt hangers back into place and tighten the muffler clamp.

When I got under there I found it pretty tight trying to remove the middle hanger mount. (I'm in my driveway not on a lift) But I dont see how the muffler can come off the pipe unless the hangers arent attached. Right? Any ideas?

And I guess its ok to just have the 2 hangers instead of three?

ait man,
you only need the rear and middle hanger. i took off all of the hangers reattatched them to new muffler and hooked it into the pipe and then reatatched the hangers to the car. kindof a pain in the a** but takes about 15min.
