This is what I did. Go to your auto parts store and purchase FLO-PRO Flex coupling part # FT17504N and 2 x 1.75 HD muffler clamps. Take the muffler off the car and cut off the both ends of the OE flex coupling. The new flex coupling should replace the OE. You might have to cut 2" on each side of the new coupling so as to get a proper fit (length). Do a couple of mock fittings to get the proper length. Use your muffler clamps on each end and your done. I did this 2 years ago and after a lot of driving the replaced coupling failed.(I thought mine was supposed to be stainless steel but apparently not and it was an off shore manufacturer) But it was an easy cheap fix. Cost me $15.00 Canadian for the new coupling and clamps and should keep me going for 2 more years. Good luck.
