Exhaust Hanger replacement

Post by AndyBeech » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:02 pm

I've got the usual common sag in the exhaust back boxes making the tips look slightly wonky. Does anyone know which hangers need replacing on this diagram:

I've ordered part 6 x2 already with new bolts etc. But do the parts 8 + 9 need replacing as well seeing as they appear to be rubber hangers as well and possibly seen better days?

I wanted to adjust mine, as they were sitting quite low. I discovered that the hangers didn’t help raise them enough. Ended up having to undo the bolts to the silencer and holding the cans in the desired position and retightening. Worth a go too.

The rubber is very hard, so I'd be surprised if they have warped. Try adjusting the bolts and seeing you can make the right adjustment there.

Would be worth ordering these if you are going to adjust your Exhausts.
