    Does anybody happen to have pictures of the header clearing the front driveshaft on a stock height Blazer? Also, what brand of headers are in the pic? Thanks

    Dont have a pic, but I know the pass header on my truck is much closer to the spring shackle (touching it) than it is to the drive shaft. Oh they are flowtechs.

    I've got unknown brand headers on mine and they only have about an inch of clearance from the driveshaft. Whenever I lock the hubs in the shft hits the headers, and it sounds like the whole exhaust is going to fall off. My mechanic said it's because the springs are sagged, but I don't think thats the problem, I think it's just the headers not fitting properly!

    I got a stock truck with saggy springs and headers....no driveshaft problems with the headers, just the cross over and i had it rerouted when i had it redone this summer. The headers do want to rub on the front pass side shackles though
