Exhaust mounting rubbers keep breaking

Hi, does anyone know where I can get decent exhaust mounting rubbers for my Mk1 Focus 1.6? I have replaced them about 6 times in 3 years due to them continually perishing and falling to bits. Tried various suppliers, including Ford who wanted to charge £6 each, and said they would need to order them in from the other place I've used which only charged me £2 each. Replaced the whole set 4 months ago and now thaey all need doing again due to perishing. Is it just rubbish rubber these days?

You seem to be having problems that most people don't have. I 'd guess that there is something different about your situation or car but you don't give much to go on.

I must say it us unusual to be honest, never had an exhaust hanger break on any car I have ever owned. It can't be the hangers just breaking surely something must be causing them to fail but what I have no idea off hand. I know eventually they will perish and break but usually they take a long time to do so.

Stumped for ideas.

Is it a standard exhaust system and is the car lowered at all?

Could the exhaust be catching on a speed bump or something and causing the hangers to break?
