    Hey all. Quick opinion hunt.

    Building an exhaust for my cruiser and just making a couple extra hangars to keep it all steady before calling it finished.

    What's the feelings on using the body for a hangar, as opposed to frame the whole way? I'd prefer not to normally, but there's an empty factory threaded hole RIGHT THERE that would be perfect to hang something.

    Too much shifting to be a good idea? Suck it up and do the extra work?

    it may add some extra stress and flex in the system but I don't see why it would be an issue.

    when you set up the hangers you should ideally having them facing in a front to back orientation instead of side to side as that will give the exhaust system move ability to expand and contact as it warms and cools.
