Direct Replacement Cat Back Exhaust Kit
This 1986-1988 Mustang direct fit cat back exhaust kit replaces your rusted, damaged, or bent exhaust system. This is a direct replacement system, replacing every part from the midpipe back. With this kit you get new flow tubes, quiet flow mufflers, new tailpipes, exhaust hangers, and all of the necessary clamps for installation. Buy a modified Foxbody and don't like the loud, aftermarket exhaust? Pick up this kit to get your Mustang back to factory specs and sounds!
High Quality Construction
Made with aluminized steel, this catback exhaust system is not only durable, it is built to last a lifetime. Bent perfectly to bolt right in place of your stock exhaust, you get factory functionality without modification. The quiet flow mufflers included in this kit keep noise levels down but still flow great for OEM performance.
Matched up to OEM bends, curves perfectly. Sounds just like when it rolled off the assembly line nearly 30 years ago. The metal lag bolts for the muffler's rear hanger are worthless so I put in 4 stainless bolts, lock washers and nuts. Also, two of the u-bolts stripped when torqued to insure the exhaust sealed correctly. Went to O'Reilly's and got heavy duty u-bolts for $6. Easiest to take off the rear tires so you've got a little more wiggle room installing the tailpipes. Does not rattle anywhere or hit anything. Very pleased.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought this item about 2-3 weeks ago, very fast shipping, very pleased. The parts fit in to the stock locations very well, no problems fitting in the new parts.
I do however have to agree with the other review here, the lag bolts, worthless, I couldn't get them to tighten down so I too went and got replacement s.s. nuts/bolts. I also (...based on the other review) went and got two additional heavy duty clamps, not sure why they included 2 heavy duty clamps and 2 standard weight clamps...?? I'm not thrilled with the (...4) rubber exhaust hangers, they are thinner and definitely not as heavy duty as the original parts, we'll see how long they last (....I kept the old ones).
I think for about another $20-$30 dollars, they could have included 4 heavy duty clamps (...instead of 2), 4 better (...heavier) rubber hangers and 4 s.s. nuts/bolts.
Don't get me wrong, for what this system costs, it is a pretty good deal, I just think for a few dollars more (....I spent about $45....retail) they could have made it a great deal.
Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service. Very rare in this day and age, and because of this I will be a customer for life, and will spread the good word ! Great to know some honest and Classy companies still operate in the good ol' USA. Thanks LateModel, and Thanks Mike !!! I look forward to seeing the New LCA'S and will review them too...You guys did the right thing and should and I'm overly impressed!
