I found another steering shaft, cut off the upper u joint and welded it into place of where the stock rag joint is and then welded the rack connector that bolts onto the rag joint onto the end and had plenty of clearance
i have the same setup. no problem at all. first you have to removed the steering shaft. installed the header, then put back the shaft, it should have about 3/4 inch clearance. also you can run the flamming river shaft, it has a lot more clearance.
Use solid motor mounts. Then it wont move around and the old ones are probably wore out anyways, mine was over and inch low when I put the LT headers in, I couldnt even put the headers in until I got the solid motor mounts.
I don't know about you guys, but I don't like to dimpled the hot jet coated header lol. try removing the shaft, installed the header, if it still hit, flaming shaft is your only option unless you try to hammer it.
