There are two springs with studs holding the exhaust pipe to the rear exhaust manifold. The studs are inside the springs. What are the purpose of these springs? can I use any springs for replacement? thank you for your reply.

Flex joint for engine movement from torque! So if you had say a broken motor mount it has somewhere to flex or move without breaking stuff!!
