Exhaust Help Please!!!

Ok, so I had a Magnaflow muffler installed today and ran it out at stock location. Go figure the guy does a crappy job, and on the way home I cut it off right past the axle at the fire department. So now it's just pointed to the ground right past the axle. The guy ended up twisting it so bad that now where the catalytic converter is, the flange with the springs is really loose. So I tried to tighten it and it turns out the springs are bent now and won't put pressure on the flange to hold it from moving. Where can I get these springs at, anyone know?

I don't want them to touch my truck again. I just want to find those springs somewhere so I can fix it and be on my way.

I don't even want to worry about it. I just want the springs. Knowing my luck, the owner was the one who did the work.

Pictures are large to retain quality. The first picture is of the welds on the tip. The second is one new hanger they made, and the stock one they just left on. This section was cut off, hence the reason it's laying in the back of my truck. The rest is just horrible welding/job.

Well I just sent an email to the company with pictures. I'm not looking for reimbursement, just making sure it doesn't happen to anyone else.
