So you have longtime headers on stock ride height and your dragging and you still want to lower it?

You might scrape a hole into them, that's why I went with shorties. How bad do you scrape? I would measure ground clearance of the headers and decide how much lower you want to risk it.

My main problem isn't the height it's the wheel gap that kills me and it drags a little not much

I think what he's talking about is measure the distance from the ground to the lowest point on your headers and make your decision based on that.

Yes WhoDat, that is what I meant. Base your decision off of how high the lowest part of the header is off of the ground.
