Headers for a bagged 87 R10 with 305
« on: August 15, 2013, 06:30:25 PM »
Can anybody tell me what are some good headers to use for my truck. It is on air bags, right now it has a set of long tube headers on it and when the bags are empty the headers supports all the weight of the truck and they scrap on every bump. Im wanting to put some shorty headers on it but im not sure which ones to use. Can anyone help?

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

I know the 88-95 shortys aren't a drop in fit but they work with very minor modification and work mint. It doesn't hurt that they're dirt cheap either.

There's a few other threads where we talked about these too:
