At this point it was extremely important to install the exhaust header so that I was sure there would be no interference between it and the shaft and steering joints. Luckily, the Doug’s headers I’d chosen worked out nearly flawlessly. By the way, this truck has been outfitted with a street rod-style rack-and-pinion IFS system, which is much different than the original steering gear setup the Chevy came with from the factory, so choosing the appropriate header design is quite important. Though the Doug’s headers I chose were nearly perfect for my situation they were actually made to fit early Chevy II’s (Doug’s PN 317) and there was only on small portion of one tube where the steering shaft made contact.
