Finished it last night. It went fine. Getting the old gasket out was a pain in the a$$, kept breaking apart and getting stuck. But it's all done now with new spring bolts and all. Had to cut the old ones off, the weird wing nut thing snapped at the welds so the bolt would just spin and not back out. Happened on both side lol. Also found out that that wasn't the only exhaust leak I had, so it's going to a shop in about an hour to get the other gasket/flange/bolts replaced at the header to cat pipe connection.
Did you figure yours out? I didn't think mine was going work, but I ended up picking up the exhaust at the connection, just before I tightened it all up, and it kinda pushed everything into place, then I tightened it all and it stayed put. Idk if that's possible for you, but worth a shot.
