'66 impala headers?

Hi I have a 66 impala with a 350 sbc with long tube headers. The car rides so low that the headers bottomed out and crushed in a few of the tunes just before the collector. I tried a set of short tunes but they won't clear the steering gear box on the left side of the engine. Has anyone had this problem before and have a recommendation for a set that will clear and allow me to keep the exhaust tighter to the car?
