    my hardware rusted and fell apart between my cat and exhaust pipe. i looked up the part on advance's website, but it doesnt quite look like what i have. then again, that could be because they have rusted and fallen apart. i tried looking up the hardware part on an online toyota part website, but it doesnt show up in the diagram. can someone help me find it?

    I tried, but couldn't find any bolts in the diagrams. I even looked in the "Body Hardware" section. :notsure:

    i found one image of the cat to exhaust pipe in the haynes repair manual. from what i can tell its not the spring/bolt setup like on the exhaust manifold. this connection doesn't have to pivot like with the manifold to the cat right? i could just use some bolts and lock washers i have laying around to bolt this all back together i think.

    I bolted everything back up complete with new gasket. I can feel a sligjt exhaust leak at the top gap though. Any ideas?
