O2 sensors need to be replace every 70,000 miles. They do wear out and give bad readings to the PCM which makes it adjust the fuel & timing thus effecting horsepower output. (Simple terms - O2 goes bad makes car run like poo!)
Now when you get LT headers the front O2 bungs are sitting further back then on the stock setup. You have 2 good ways and 1 bad way to deal with this.
Option 1: Buy the extensions used these with no issues (I have these and have had no issues)
Option 2: Buy the Bosh 13111 O2 sensors - they are for corvettes but still work on our cars, don't let the counter guy tell you different. These have a very long wire harness that will reach to the new O2 bung with no problems
Option 3: When you get the headers some include a extension kit that you can cut and splice in extensions for you current harness. This is bad and has caused more issues then solved.

Ah, the simple terms maked me understand!
I didn't know they wore out man, that's good to know. Option 1 will be the one I go with
