    Driver side header trouble

    So I ordered obx headers and the passenger side went in easy. But I can't get the driver's side in, it is catching on something. What is the best and easiest way without cutting to get it in?

    It depends on what its caught on. Is it hitting the K member? If so your going to need to grind it.

    Mine was actually the steering linkage bar. The one that has a universal joint looking thing in it. Took that out and had more room that I ever could have asked for. Getting it back in was a trick though.

    Take a medium size flat screw driver and use it to spread the slip on section of the linkage. You may be able to twist the screwdriver some to get it to spread enough. I used a hammer and tapped it a few times and pulled the screw driver back out. After I did that mine slipped right back together.
