    Angry another problem

    ever since i got my headers, i have been experiencing a lot of shaking and a grinding noise at the steering wheel.
    it only happens when i give it some gas
    it vibrates and sounds like it is grinding
    i looked under the hood and the steering column thing touches the headers
    i am sure this is what is causing it but i dont know how to take care of it
    any help is appreciated

    OK.....You have two choices...
    1) send the headers back and get a full refund if they were marketed to fit your car.
    2) Go to an exhaust shop and have them fabricate a workaround.
    Those are your two choices.

    Or take off the steering shaft and beat the pipe in a small bit. Probably wouldn't take much to get appropriate clearance.

    Girls..beat the shit out of everything and void any warranty you may have/had....and "dimpling" on a header sorta ruins the effect of flow dont it
    Oh what the hell...get a hammer and beat the shit out of it.

    It's a time honored tradition,clearancing the headers to fit.If you can get to it after removing the steering shaft,take a torch and heat up the spot red hot first.It will be alot easier to dent that way. Or you can do like I just did on this Jeep I'm working on.I moved the bottom steering column mount over. Not sure I would try this on a F-body,or most cars for that matter-but it worked great on a 78 CJ5.(fiberglass body)
