Default stronger exhaust hangers

I put my 3" exhaust in last week, using the stock rubber hangers. They seem to have sagged a little, the 3" is quite heavier than stock. Do you guys use silicone hangers? where can I get something stronger?

You can use poly hangers. Not sure where to get them though.

i dont think the urethane hangars are significantly different than the rubber stockers. i've run both and i'm not really impressed with the latter over stock.

They helped on my car but the stock ones where 15 years old and not in good shape.

I put a hose clamp around the stock rubber ones to tighten them up, worked perfect.

I started using urethane ones that are even harder than the Powerflex units sold by Goodwin. I have a few sets in stock for $30 shipped a pair.

Did you reuse the original ones? Usually they stretch and sag over time. You can buy new rubber at the parts store for a few bucks a pop. If they are inadequate you can add a couple to distribute the weight.

When you throw them on the ground they don't bounce
