Well, actually guys, the muffler bearings are supposed to be replaced at the 100k miles service interval. If you don't replace them, then at least repack them. I'd hate to see you get stuck out in the middle of no where because of a bad muffler.

How hard is it to change a muffler? Would I need any special tools, or am I looking at a cat back replacement?

All you need to change a muffler is a cutting torch and a welder and something to hold it in place while you're welding. Or if you want to do it in your driveway you could probably get away with using a sawzall and clamping it onto the pipe. And if you don't have a sawzall, but you really want to do it yourself, you can use a hacksaw. If you're sawing it off, make sure you wear safety glasses.
