Since this thread has been resurrected, I have a question to throw out there since I'll be installing mine this weekend. Is there a problem with bolting the exhaust hanger bracket under the evap skid as opposed to on top and grinding down that lip? I thought that's how it was intended to be installed since the lip did cause a weird fit with the bracket on top.
And I've always struggled pulling those rubber isolators off when hangers have a cone. I usually use a screwdriver but have never tried a pry bar. Wish I knew to try that as I just ordered one of these exhaust hanger pliers online. It was pretty cheap though so even if pry bar makes it relatively easy, it'll be a cool tool to have.
