      Comments about Walker Quiet-Flow SS Muffler Assembly:

      I liked the smaller size and lighter weight, but unfortunately the flange for the tail pipe was at the wrong angle for me also (see other reviews). It's hard to say if this is the fault of walker, as my exhaust was already after-market, so tail pipe could have been different (but like I said, others have had the same issue). The angle on mine was off far enough that I could not force it to fit, so I clamped the new muffler into a pipe vise and heated the output pipe with Oxy-Acetlyene torch, stuck a bar into the output flange area & bent it to the correct angle. I tried to do it first with a big pipe wrench and bar, but the pipe wrench either just slipped or started to flatten the pipe. BTW - If it is stainless, it is very low quality, as it is magnetic (also noted in another review). Of course it relatively inexpensive, so I wouldn't have expected highest quality.
      I test ran it, and it seems nice & quiet, no leaks.

      Stainless steel is not magnetic.
      False description. But fits perfectly.

        I looked at all the comments online and most were correct about the fit. Walker could do a better job. It's close but not a precise fit as stated.

        Fitment problem - '01 Rodeo

        By 

        from New Hampshire

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Walker Quiet-Flow SS Muffler Assembly:

        Size, dimensions and hanger locations all OK, but angle of flange mating to tailpipe is wrong. When tightened, tailpipe is forced well above its first hanger (1/2" from body cross member). Had to cut off and grind down that hanger mount from the pipe to give clearance. Tail end hanger carries the entire assembly aft of the can hanger. Definitely not a run-of-the-mill DIY job. At the end of the day, it worked, and sounds fine - just a bit of a tinny ring - normal for the breed.

        One note: I kept the OEM tailpipe (it was fine), so the flange angle may mate up with a Walker pipe just fine - I'll never know - but if so, Advance should not "certify" fitment without specifying end-to-end replacement.

            The Walker muffler fit the same as the OEM and easily connected to the rest of the exhaust system.
