The catalyst come as an assembly on most Ford and Lincoln vehicles. You may be able to go to an aftermarket muffler/ exhaust shop and just replace the one catalyst but the engine may not run evenly and the other catalyst may be right behind the one that needs replaced now. The shop is doing you a favor by recommending the catalyst as an assembly so you engine will run better an will have equal back pressure in the exhaust.
