On one of the converters the heat shield came apart, on all of the others the ceramic just broke down and collapsed. As for the mufflers they have all been rusted out. Most were rusted from underneath but a couple started on either end. You're very correct that this many repairs is a joke. I started with one of those chain mufflers shops that put a guarantee on parts and labor until they decided that I was costing them too much and grandfathered a policy change that eliminated the warranty.
I've worked on as much of the emmisions system as I can afford with only the EGR valve left to replace. Any suggestions would be a great helpl.
