The OEM part number 9C2Z-5E212-E is for the rear. However, it does not specify whether the converter is Federal or California emission, which is an important piece of information for an aftermarket part (non-OEM). Check the Vehicle Emission Control Information sticker, usually found underneath the hood. Federal emissions (46-state) stickers will simply say, "This vehicle conforms to U.S. EPA regulations," whereas California-emissions (50-state) vehicles will say, "This vehicle conforms to U.S. EPA and State of California regulations." Your vehicle will not pass the test if you install a converter that does not comply with the emission specification.
This link will take you to our website where your vehicle information has already been entered. It will show you available rear converters for your vehicle.
We hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Your muffler shop should be able to to advise as for fitment. As long as it fits and doesn't impede moving parts(suspension,frame etc)
You should be golden..

Grace I've found similar results to your link by searching year/make/model but those are all for a 2.25 inch pipe. Mine is 3 inch diameter. When searching by VIN instead of make/model it says 9C2Z-5E212-E which is different from the ones on that link. Maybe because it is a bus.
I've been told that many universal cats are for vehicles with less than 8,500 GVWR. Mine is 12,500 GVW. I was told that if I don't get one rated for my load then the internal substrate would break down. But I do not know how to tell what load each cat can handle?
I think this is what I want but I'm hoping there is something much cheaper that will also work.
Thank you for any additional info. Especially if you can help me determine if I need something specific because of the high GVW which is what I have been told elsewhere.
