I was just told the problem is that he got it for a 4 x 4 NOT a standard. We were told that the "hangers" are different from standard & four wheel drive.

I have been waiting for an answer to my question since 7-9-15 and the mechanic has not responded yet. I feel I should receive a refund since as of today 7-21-15 I am still unsure if:
Part Number ordered: 5290-05033416 (catalytic converter - Eastern Catalytic Co.)
Part Number ordered: 5290-05080699 (manifold- Dormer)
Vin # ***** (1998 Ford F 150 XLT, NOT a 4 x 4)
Will these part numbers work on this vehicle?
Again Either a refund or an answer to my questions PLEASE!!

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
