To prevent this from happening again I fabricated a bracket for each side out of plain exhaust hangers and attached a hangar to each clamp.
I took off my CME tips this winter and had them powdercoated and the lips polished. I also had a friend of a friend weld up an extra piece to brace them together. Here's a pick of what they look like now, they are going back on the car when I do my header install next weekend.



Btw nice ride, I've got a 02 SS as well.
