working with exhaust for the last 22 years my answer would be yes you can replace just the flex if the pipes are good and you have some welding skills...the is there to relieve tension from engine vibration or movement, A common cause of failure is BAD MOTOR MOUNTS...Make sure to check them...

Robbie that's usually the one piece places like AZ & Advance don't carry and if they do it's connected to the Head pipe & expensive. May have to get it from a muffler shop. Or as mentioned above Evilbay.
