I for the life of me cannot find this part. I'm in Cambridge Ontario Canada and have every other piece to convert my 2009 GM to dual exhaust.

I've tried online, dealers and local scrap yards. I can get a new one for about $120 USD. that would make it by far the most expensive part of the conversion.

any Ideas? suggestion of a universal part?

Forgive me if you already thought of this, but at the scrapyards, try looking for a Crown Vic with HPP or a Police Interceptor. Also, I believe anything from '03 and up should be the same...maybe even earlier.

I paid $16.95 for this one but the price has apparently gone up quite a bit:

That is a criminal amount for that part. The one by the muffler is $8. Are they really different side to side? I should raid the junk yard for these and add to my hoard that I am giving away...

The tailpipe hangers are the same on either side unless something changed that I don't know about. The actual bracket looks like its the same part that goes back to at least the box body days, but the rubber isolator is different for a '03+.

Yeah, with the 90 degree difference between the body side and the tailpipe side, I don't recall seeing any universals like that.

When I replaced mine I got 1/2 shorter ones than it came with to tuck the tailpipe out of view, it never made my bumper cover black or sooty.

I would almost think that the bracket is the same as 98+ (or earlier) and the rubber isolator could be replaced with Walker 35149 but it almost looks like it is 1/2 on one side, 3/8 on the other, and ours is 3/8 on both.
