it's above the catalytic converter, bolted to the "roof" of the tunnel under the car.

I need to be honest: If you don't know where the catalytic converter is, much less the exhaust system, you may want to stop now.

So you didn't know where the cat is let alone the heatshield for it. You didn't know if you had to jack up the car to do the cable job. But between 6:00 and 9:00 today you miraculously did it AND your tie rods at the same time! I think we are all feeling a major tugging on our legs (or we should be).
