Customer q:

I installed an independent front suspension kit with power rack and pinion. problem is my headers won't clear the steering shaft, I even added a 3rd swivel joint with steering shaft bearing. I presently have headman headers for this truck they worked great with the straight axel that used to be under it. I am working on a limited budget so I don't want ss or ceramic coated if possible painted preferred. any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for giving Jegs the opportunity to assist you.
We do not offer a header that is made to fit this model with a rack and pinion steering conversion.  You may need to alter the header you have or have a a customer set of headers mad by a local fabricator.
