Longtube clearance issues

I'm trying to decide between longtube and shorty headers and my main concern is this:
If I go longtube will they be too long?
I'm dropping the car 3in on some semi stretched 18s and I would really rather not scrape. So if I have to go with some shorties then I will but since in naturally aspirated I'd like to go longtube, thanks!



This car is a pain in my ***

3" drop is a lot of drop.


I have my long tubes tucked up nicely against the car as well as my h pipe. People that have low hangers need to adjust their system as it will fit nicely. Now with you being slammed that might make a difference. When I have 2 other people in my car and I go over a big speed bump a hair to fast it will ever so lightly scape.

Longtubes with a car dropped that much is just asking to rip them to pieces.
