Thanks for getting back to me.
So I called Ford parts and they said they don't stock the part any longer. Call an aftermarket provider.
So I look up the cat's on Autozone's site and I find one for the front "Walker New York/Catalytic Converter, price $102.99, universal fit. The back cat is $178.99.
On NAPA sites for the universal fits, front is $159, back is $179.
The direct fit is $879, but that's all four cats and the pipe too.
The shop told me it was around $1100 for the front catalytic converter, and that's not installed, the back was around $280 installed.
I've heard the cat's are expensive because of the precious metals, etc.
Would somebody clue me in on what the cat's should cost? And should you go with the universal fit or the direct fit?
