probably??? you need someone who can tell you for real if it needs to be replaced. this is an expensive project and a guess is not good enough.

according to alldata, factory converters are 1450 per side and you have 2. 1 hour in labor.

I would shop around for a california certified converters for a better price before jumping into this.

make sure both are bad first. you may only need one side replaced but a real diag form a real shop will verify.
