Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

Yeah, the hangars are completely broke. One of my pipes just hangs down, not quite on the ground though.

How much should I be looking at to fix this? I called the last guy who worked on my exhaust, and he said he'd do it for free, but he's 100 miles away, and I'm not driving that far for it.

How do I get this to the exhaust shop without ****in something up?

Re: Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

wire it up... you should be able to find a place on the underside of the car to wire it up, and then get it to the exhaust shop ASAP.

It will take longer to lift the car than it will to weld it.

Re: Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

Damn. I left my 2x4s at home. I can't go anywhere, haha.

I looked under the car as best I could. There's a broken weld at the tip, and another one at the muffler. This is the second time I've had broken welds in my exhaust. The places I've been to must SUCK.

I also sat the pipe on some rocks so the stress wouldn't hurt anything. I think it's hanging from the headers back...

Re: Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

worst case scenario maybe $70 depends on how much they gotta weld. I paid $70 when my y-pipe rusted off at the cats. But then again they charged me of a little bit of new pipe too. We paid @ $50 to have a door hinge welded back on,on my bro's truck.

Re: Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

If you just go to a local muffler shop they will charge you maybe 20 to weld it or around 20 to replace it.

Re: Exhaust pipe hangars broke... need help

Well I had to borrow a Toyota truck jack, but I managed to squeeze it under there, it would only fit under the pumpkin, haha.

It's held up by a wire hangar for now. But it's not moving until the morning when I can get to a shop.
