You are correct, it is 2" pipe at the mufflers on the stock exhaust system, not 2-1/4. To answer your question, yes you would use a 2" muffler clamp, however once you cut the mufflers off, there really isn't a straight area there to clamp to, so you will need to either cut forward if that bend and add another bend going to the aftermarket muffler, or the better option would be to weld them on instead of clamping them.
