    Header Clearance Help Please

    I have the Eibach Sportline springs and I want a header that will clear and not force me to go back to stock springs. Saw the post below me but it didn't answer my question. Will Pacesetter longtubes be too much? Should I go with the Flowtech ones that are supposed to be 2-1/2" shorter? Any help will be greatly appreciated. 1-3/8" in the front and 1-5/8" in the rear.

    Just stay away from slp and you will be ok. That doesnt mean your going to have gobs of clearence but you will get by just fine.
    In my opinion pacesetters are the way to go, for price and fitment.

    Thank you sir. I appreciate the input very much. I have to get moving as I just found out my rearend is going out so I need to do that also. Rather crappy that they put series 2 (200) gears with a craptastic () 2.73 in a trans am....can't complain about the 28 mpg though. Oh well thats outta here. Hello 3.73! Anyone have a series 3 (300) carrier they wanna unload?

    Like above, just stay away from SLP headers and you're fine. I put Hooker LT and ORY on Too Fast, I actually gained clearance. Now if I would just get off my ass and put lower springs on....anyway todays job is to repaint the backs of my LeMans, take recycles, cut down the broken tree limb, on and on.

    Lol its funny you mention cutting down tree limb, iv spent the past 2 days cutting down a 80 foot pine, came down great, but the stump is whooping my ass. I appreciate being a mechanic, life is soo much easier.

    ^^^I never did get to that tree limb LOL! It was 90 and HUMID yesterday, and I wasn't clear about what I did to the LeMans. I repainted the plastic back covers to the front seats, it came out pretty good. It's a ragtop, and yeah, I've saved countless thousands of dollars in my life being a mechanic. Too Fast needs an oil change and tire rotation.
