dent the headers or reroute steering shaft with u-joints. better yet, put a TRZ rack in it and route the steering shaft through the frame/cross member and that will clear any header combination.

Headers should have been built to clear.
^^This^^

Whose headers? My big ass 2-3/8" tubes on my tall deck cleared my factory shaft fine, but they were custom built..

At the point you are at now, either have a new shaft built to clear, or dent the header tube some(crude, i know) The right way would be get the proper headers. Lemons would be my recommendation. My 2 1/4 to 2 3/8" stepped Lemon's cleared with plenty of room to spare.

i have those same shitty headers and i had to dent some primaries. very old pic of my set-up but i am using a flaming river column with their double-D shaft and u-joints to a manual box. i scrapped all that bullshit except for the flaming river column(very nice piece) for a TRZ rack now. anyways, hope this helps..
