Question Question about exhuast hangers

I have a bit of a predicament. I now have a full turbo exhaust with 3 inch piping. The exhaust hangers i currently have are very old and after the exhaust gets hot, i can hear and feel the exhaust pipe making contact with the body of the car. I have looked already and saw many people recommend the Kartboy hangers. But which ones should I get? The short ones or the long ones? Would the long hangers sway more and still make the exhaust sway?

Any advice, reviews and personal experiences is much appreciated. Please give a sort of elaborate explanation why you like the hangers you have. Typing" Perrin hangers are awesome". Okay..why are they awesome? Thanks in advance.

How close is the tip to the bumper now? if it has a good thumb thickness then you can run the normal length. if its any closer then i'd run the XL hangers. Those are right about 0.75" longer than the normal ones.

FYI we recommend using some soapy water to help slide the hangers on and off. DO NOT sure WD 40 or petroleum based lube as it will deteriorate the urethane over time.

Hi Tom, I am actually considering the Kartboy hangers. I went and checked my car out and I stuck my thumb sideways between the exhaust and the bumper and the fit was just right. So normal sized hangers it is! Whats happening is that when my exhaust get hot, the stock hangers are loosen up and there is rattling.

thanks for the info and ill make sure to NOT put wd40 or petro based lube to put on the hangers.

I was reading on rally sport direct the reviews for these 15mm hangers and someone brought a good point. My hangers are obviously sagging, so if i bought the stock size kartboy hangers, wouldn't that make the exhaust be pulled up and possibly make the exhaust make contact with the car or the bumper? Ive never had to buy hangers before so I want to make sure I purchase the correct ones.

good point. Measure the distance C-C with the exhaust on there now our normal length ones are the same as stock. 1.400" the XL ones are 2.370" C-C

I have the short ones on my car and because they were much stiffer than stock they did pull my exhaust up higher.
