Is there any way to get around this other than shaving the headers?

What motor mounts are you running?

You can ding the header pipe but I don't think that is necessary. When I put my pacesetters in I made sure the motor was as far over to the passenger side as possible. It is close but does not rub.

^ agree'd. don't grind into your headers. either try to pry your engine over a bit, use aftermarket poly engine mounts, or use a ball hammer and put a small ding in it to give you the clearance

If you don't have the right hammer. Place a broomstick where you need to ding it and hit the broomstick with your regular hammer. This will give you a nice clean ding I the tubing. But you should be able to get it to fit without doing this. If not you would be the first person who has had fitment issues with these headers.

I'd rather have a chance of a header rusting than a steering shaft snapping or twisting while going around a turn

I would never grind my headers or steering linkage. How much clearance are you going to grind away on your headers before you put a hole in your primary pipe and I would never want to grind my steering linkage as small as it is to begin with. If I had to make clearance it would be much better to put a small dent in your pipe. But like it was said before, you just need to shift the motor over on it's mounts.

Try shifting the engine over> strategic dent> new motor mounts> different headers> put stock or shorty manifold on> sell car> grind headers/steering shaft
