got the exhaust system off, cleaning it up, undoing the bracket bolt it snapped, I hadn't realised the rusty old nut was actually welded, question is do I need to put them back on, not sure what they do?

thanks
They are not even listed as separate parts - need to buy a whole system.

Not sure what they are for except to make the system more rigid (maybe to stop fractures in the interconnecting pipes) but I built new headers without them and most aftermarket systems don't use them so I don't imagine you will have any problems without them. (and save a few grams)

reckon u r right but can't see they really make a difference, after cleaning I realised they each have are different letter and I think individually shaped, problem is I don't remember which went where so gonna leave them off, will save a whopping 197 grams, whoopee
