Q: 2004 chevrolet cavalier exhaust hanger fell off of broke, can i use a universal exhaust hanger?

asked by on November 14, 2017

was driving home and was being followed by a friend who noticed my exhaust was bouncing up and down. When i got out of the car i inspected it myself and noticed it seems to be hanging freely and "bouncing" due to the exhaust hanger not being there. So my question is can i use a universal exhaust hanger instead of getting the 2004 cavalier model hanger in order to fasten and stabilize my tail pipe?

My car has 64000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You can use a universal hanger to support the exhaust to keep it from hanging down. You may need to use a clamp and hanger to attach the pipe to the frame support mount.
