W/o pics....no but you'll have to have bearing supports along the steering shaft to maintain rigidity, can't and won't work w/o them.

I had to route my steering around the headers on my sbc - I ended up with 3 u-joints, so I had to add a support bearing. Maybe these pics will help you figure yours out.
