I'll jump in here... I installed SS exhaust springs from Spruce 100 hours ago. They were loose during the install so I re-bent the welded attachment bales to stretch the springs and add preload. Added benefit is springs are now spaced further away from exhaust tubing. I used high-temp RTV to pack the inside of each spring. Good fix...
