I've noticed that all the hanger brackets are solid with NO flex. Was the whole muffler and pipe arrangement meant to be solid from front to back with no consideration for flexing?? Very nice to say the least!!

Hi Bob,

I have tried to replicate the exhaust as was original to the truck. I found no rubber mounts listed anywhere. There is a spring mount on the header pipe that I have not placed yet, but that is the only non solid mount on the exhaust system, and not much movement there anyway, but room to flex I suppose, with the engine. Not much movement to be had with the frame, some flex I suppose, but I would guess the suspension is the big giver. That was the story with my 353 GMC. Your question would best be answered by those who are now driving there chevy's and how they mounted their exhaust system. If any drivers are reading this thread please feel free to add your opinions, as you are the ones in the know. Thank you Bob, for your kind comment and I hope your question will get resolved. Hopefully, in a couple months, I can answer personally :D

I have never seen a rear exhaust pipe exit behind the mud flap. That does look like a better way to protect the pipe.Has anyone ever seen that from the factory? Thanks

Warren, tons of original photos of this muffler tailpipe configuration in David Doyle's "Chevrolet G-506" book recently published and on the market.
