Default OBX stainless headers?

I am looking at a set of stainless steel shorty OBX headers for my 99 GT,priced at 300.00.The ad says they will not work with offset rack bushings which i have.Anyone know why that is?

Hmmm, can't imagine how the steering rack could possibly be in the way of headers. And it's not as if offset bushings alter it's location very dramatically anyway, so... My guess is whoever typed the ad may be mildly retarded and forgot to wear their helmet that day.

Where did you find these things anyway? Never heard of OBX. If they're some good ol' "Ebay Specials", imo keep looking. Especially since they have somehow figured out a way to fab up shorty headers that may have clearance issues with the steering rack, lol. Sounds like some real geniuses they must have down there, haha. For that price, there are other better known and reputable options - BBK, FRPP, just to name a couple.

I doubt I would pay $300 when they advertise them for $259. I would talk him down to $200 and that is if they are new.

Offset rack may result in steering arm and header fitment. ??

Talked to one local guy and another forum guy who said OB X quality sucks and urged me to pass.
