Wink Exhaust clamp - creative approach

R107 (1986 560SL)
Looking for a creative approach to suspending the end exhaust.

Seems the exhaust system is intact, but slightly miss aligned. When I use teh rubber hangers at the very end, they break.

Currently I'm using hose clamps, but am expecting they will break.

Do you have a suggestion for holding the end of the exhaust, under the bumper, to replace the hose clamps (3 inch clamp one side, 4 inch clamp the other side)

Thanks for your suggestions.

SS screw clamps will work, I've used them on various cars to mount hangers.

Some factory rubber hangers have a small roller chain embedded in the rubber to prevent failure.

tivoliman, probably best to realign the exhaust system so the standard rubber donuts function as designed. Aftermarket donuts are likely not as durable as those from a MB dealer. It seems that either your car was involved in a slight accident, or a tech performed a sloppy installation of replacement parts. The same size donut should fit on both sides of the exhaust system at a given location.
