Fitting Silencer

I was just wondering what the technique is for fitting a silencer. The problem would seem to be rather basic but results from the new box being slightly different from the original. My problem is how to hook on the hangers.. The original silencer had one of the hangers un-boltable so it was possible to slide in one side and then bolt of the second. The new stainless steel silencer has both hangers welded in place and I cannot see how it is possible to hook them in as there is not enough lateral movement available. The rubber mounts are hidden behind the heat shield which I assume is fitted first.
Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
