    I got Summit's for 100$. They fit good, no problems. Just have to make sure you keep all electrical wires away from them because they will melt on contact :(

    I had some problems with my Summit headers, left side fit no problem, right side, problems. I had to heat the pipes with a blowtorch and bend them about 1/2 inch inbord so they would clear the frame, then I had to grind the head down on the bottom shackle bolt cuz the collector was hitting it. That was about 12 years ago so the headers you get from Summit today will probably bolt right in. Except for all the rust on 'em they have been very good/cheap headers. I paid about 70$ for em' back in '95.

    I agree I have an 84 k5 blazer 4x4 and I bought the flo tech headers at advanced auto parts for around $100 and it came with gaskets and everything needed.

    The only problem I had with the Summit headers was that I had to trim the lower shackle bolt. They came with all the hardware that I needed.
