Default steering nuckles

I am the new guy. I've just started adding mods to my mustang. It's a 92 gt conv. 5 speed.
Anyway I just installed new CAM stainlees steal short headers. The problem i have is the clearance for the steering nuckle. I need to move it up towards the fire wall about 1" to clear the headers. anyone ever tackled this problem??

there is a replacement you can get, it's a lot skinier to clear. look at jegs or summit

try ebay, or the classifieds on any of these sites.

http://www.californiafords.com

http://www.corral.net

http://www.stangnet.com

or http://www.ebay.com

average price is $300 for a used cobra upper and lower.

i would not bother w/ an explorer, just a cobra or real gt40
