How much were you torquing them down?
Call Borla, they should send you new ones for free if they were defective.

Were they just your basic 2.5" sleeve clamps? You can buy those at your local auto zone.

i had the torque wrench set at 31 ftlbs and two of the spacers snapped long before 30, i was under the impression that the Accuseal clamps they use are better than the ones from auto zone?

You are correct, the Accuseal clamps are much better than anything that you will get at autozone. You must have gotten a defective one. Give Borla a call, their customer service is top notch.
