Yes, the stock mufflers are held together with brackets, but you gotta remember, 1) they are meant to be super tight and therefore the tolerances are extremely tight as is the bracket and B) that exhaust pipe has been heated up and cooled many, many times. It's not going to give up very easy. Get you some PB Blaster, soak the joint very well and let it soak for a couple hours. You're also going to need a big ass dead blow hammer to pound the muffler to get the muffler off. Just because it's bolted on doesn't mean it's going to be easy. Which is one of the reasons why I had my pipes cut off and the new cat back welded on.
