+1 and amen to that one. i am doing my flex disc next week, i have all new hardware for everything that comes off, inluding exhaust bolts, gaskets and hangers, makes the whole thing more pricey, but i hate nothing more than doing a job and then finding out you have a crack in a 8 dollar dust cover or some crap.
also, this way destruction is a viable option for removal.
