I am replacing my current set of headers. I had a set of dynomax that were ceramic coated. the finish lasted several years. from day one I didn't like how they fit. the collector flange lined up perfectly with the lower shackle bolt. One of the reasons I am replacing them is that I jumped the truck last time out and bent them. the shackle bolt must have grabbed the collector on the landing. now the passenger side leaks at the head. UPS just dropped off a set of Hedman's. couple of reasons I went with them. FOR MUD(Julian) has a set and they fit much better. My current dynomax headers hang below the frame. I got the set with with the ball socket flange so hopefully they will not leak at the collector. I pulled them out of the box and not only are there spots where the paint has rubbed off but there are several spots where the paint is thin. Obviously these will eventually rust no matter what I do, but can I postpone it some? rattle can Hi-temp and call it a day or is there something else?
