Ron asked me if I would be willing to do a install and a review and I couldn't pass it up with seeing how much the exhaust moves last time i was under the car.
If you're interested in grabbing your own you can do that HERE.
GIFs at the end of the post show a before and after of exhaust movement.

First thing you're going to notice when you get these out of the bag is that they are STIFF. They have some give to them but once you feel the OEM ones you'll see what I'm talking about.
And here's what they look like


A set of 4 will do your whole exhaust.
biggest thing about these is that they are the EXACT same length as the stock hangers, so fitment issues with the exhaust won't be a thing.






Things you'll want to have for the install:
Exhaust hanger tool for removing the old hangers
$15-$25 depending on brand and what store you buy them


Silicone spray, gonna make getting the new hangers on MUCH easier.


Now get them installed!
Use the tool to remove the old hangers, replace them one at a time and you shouldn't have to worry about supporting the exhaust at all.
Apply a liberal amount of silicone spray to the hanger on the exhaust and the new Whoosh poly hanger.
Start on the exhaust first, then slide it onto the body side. If it gives you any issues you can always use a pair of adjustable pliers to give you a hand with some accurately applied force but you probably wont need it.


They fit SO damn well, and they even look better even if it's only you that know they're there.


Now for the real question. How well do they work?
Here's the stock exhaust hangers and movement:


Now here's after all 4 have been replaced:


That alone to me makes these little guys worth their weight in gold!

Any questions post them down below!

Nicely done! For even something as simple as this, great work.

Just installed a set on Friday with a Thermal R&D CBE. Huge improvement over the stock hangers!
Hows the side to side wiggle of the exhaust tip? Mine was sliding back and forth a bit so I added some locking collars on the car-side hanger around the poly hanger and it fixed it right up.

It's pretty stiff actually, just tried to move it back and forth and it's solid.

Installed the rear (2) hangers only ( either side of the STOCK muffler ) and solved the floppy muffler problem. The Whoosh poly hangers at $8 each delivered is an excellent low budget mod ! Tip spacing relative the the valance is the same as stock. Delivery was only (2) days. I jacked the car ( and placed a jack stand ! ) at the right rear only to access the rear hangers. I left the up stream stock hangers in place, probably a good thing for thermal movement and NVH.

I ended up ordering 3. I was able to get the rearmost one on fairly easily, but the one behind it (back of the muffler) gave me so much trouble i ended up giving up and am taking it a shop tomorrow.

I went out and bought a six inch c clamp just to try and apply even pressure to pop it on but had no luck. Super frustrating because it's such a "dumb" job, but i know the folks at the exhaust shop will fit it in about 10 minutes.

I used some Silglyde silicone grease...took some work but got it on. But I will admit that one was a real Gem!

I grabbed a glob of vaseline out of the tin to get my torque solution hangers, on. This was honestly the hardest part of my catback install.
I've installed them on 3 exhausts now with no issue including Milltek which has unusually large ends on the muffler and exhaust sections
