Default Headers (with Cat) to front exhaust system rattle, a few questions?

Hello,
Rattle that as noted on the board has been located the junction where the headers meet the front exhaust section (1 in image). I stuck a wire between the gap in the connection to limit movement and it helped for a while but blew out with vibration.

To insert a new gasket ring (5) part number 11627830668 do i have to remove the entire section 1? How do you guys do it? I've looked around and can't find a clear answer. Also, do you get bolts 6,3 and nuts 7,4 and gasket 2 as well?

Thanks

You'll probably have to remove section 1 to separate them enough, yes.

ughh, guess I should loosen front nuts to allow swivel room to lower the rear portion and slide it out.
