My current headers are the Hedman Elites. Really very nice, but they routed them too low. They could be about 1.5" higher than they are and still clear everything. Currently with two people in the car, the header flange is between 2-3" off the ground. By far the lowest part of the car and sucks to be so watchful of everything.

No question.. I'll bash the hell out of these at some point. I figure it's better to replace them now while I can still sell them for something. could be resourceful and weld some 1/4" plate baffles off the frame structure to sit in front of the headers and defend them against bashing. I wouldn't let a little thing like ground clearance force me to get rid of a set of quality headers.
