    Hello,
    What are some good exhaust hangers for do-it-yourselfers? I just did a complete custom duel exhaust for my k5. I am running headers with 21/2" pipe coming off from both headers then a dynomax cats then a flowmaster H pipe then single inlet/outlet flowmaster mufflers. The system looks good. It is one of the best duel exhaust systrm I have seen in a long time. :D
    Thanks
    Adam

    I hung mine with plumbing strapping(spooled metal band with holes in it) from Lowe's and it lasted for over 3 years....the ones the exhaust shop welded in lasted 8 months

    If you could make them work, stock ones off a donor.

    Nothing else I've seen installed has been near as rugged. Mine have lasted 19 years so far. :)

    Diesels were dual to the rear, so easy choice, again if they can be made to work.

    try this...

    My friend at the junkyard used old connecting rods for pipe hangers!--they looked cool,and you wont EVER break them!--he stuffed a peice of rubber fuel line in the wrist pin end for a "bushing" to reduce vibration...I thought the looked pretty darn neat,and so did many guys at car shows who copied his idea!..he used some from a junk corvair engine for his 2" tailpipes--they fit perfect!--probably need BBC ones for 2-1/2" pipe.. :crazy:
