I have a stock steering box and a set of hooker fenderwell headers they wont fit over the box do I have to move the motor or do they make headers to fit the 210s steering box

Did you get them from Speedway Motors? I bought some many years ago and they did not fit. Cost me the UPS charge both ways when they said it's not their fault. :evil:

One other thing. You have to redo the parking brake as well.
