What did u do in order to make yours fit?
I had t dent my subframe, cut and weld a relief in my header to clear my sway bar, had to bend my sway bar for additional clearance, had to dent the shit out of my header to clear the control arm bushing (I suggest just getting treehouse/akg/knockoff cab's). The worst thing about mine though are that they have 2-bolt threaded flanges, so the top bolt of the passenger side pipe is practically impossible to line up. What I did to fix this was drill the threaded holes out of the flanges ad run a through bolt so I could fasten the nut on the front side of the header flange which is much easier.

I have heard of some people having massive problems like myself, and some people who get ebay headers have them work great. Hopefully you are one of the lucky ones

That sounds like a terrible time lol. I REALLY hope it's not as bad. I'm tempted to start this project now lol but I'd rather wait until all my parts are collected. however,I am going to go jack up the car and see what I will be dealing with, knowing me, ill probably drop the whole exhaust haha
