Just ordered a Dynomax 39135 cat-back and its coming tomorrow!!
I took a look under my truck and saw that the two "spring" bolts are badly rusted where the muffler pipe hooks up with the cat pipe. I need new ones for sure cause the nut and bolt are fused in one piece with some high quality corrosion. So heres my question, Autozone wants like $20 for these bolts, which seems pretty expensive to me. Can I just use some stainless $2 bolts from my local hardware store?? I read on one of the ranger forums that these "special" bolts must be used because it alleviates stress on the rest of the exhaust system (or something like that) SO whats the verdict, hardware store or blow the twenty on oem replacements?
