Swapped out exhaust systems, went to a gn1 performance system, from what looked to be an ATR system. i noticed on the gn1 system it didnt have the mounting tab between the catalytic converter and the start of catback system. I don't like the idea of letting the system hang with no support in the middle. Any ideas where i might be able to find a solution? i've attached a pic so you can see what i'm talking about. thanks for the help.

@OConnor thanks, I have the hanger portion off the trans Mount and the rubber, just missing the piece off the exhaust collector which bolts into the rubber straps.
 
The Pypes I installed(if I remember correctly) did not have a tab either.

When I got it hooked up & bolted up with the exhaust hangar it seems very rigid. No drooping or anything. I did put a new piece of rubber on my exhaust hangar though.
 
Try driving one every day for 35 years. :p
Luckily about 20 percent of the car you don't really need. o_O;)
 
What's the best option for someone who doesn't have any bit of the factory hanger setup? The 3" downpipe keeps dropping down and hitting the frame, so I'd like to get the factory hanger back in place or fab something up myself. Thanks.

As already stated (above) you need this hangar which bolts in between your exh system & catalytic converter (or test pipe). If you can’t find a used bracket , then spend the ca$h for one at GBody Parts. It’s as easy as that !
You don’t need that tab on your exhaust system

Oh ok, so the longer bracket is the one that is sandwiched between the trans and trans mount right?

Yes that is correct & the open 3 bolt hole bracket mounts behind your 4 bolt flange on the exhaust system
