Patriot Headers are highly recommended for those using power steering gear boxes or rack and pinion steering.

I think they are made by PerTronix Performance Products. Otherwise...type Patriot headers in your search engine and you should find a whole bunch of companies selling them. Jeg's and Summit for instance.

I run Patriot headers on my sbc.. and I have a few friends that run them also. They are very good overall, especially if your car is low to the ground.. there is one slight issue with these headers however. On the drivers side, the 3rd tube from the front is tilted very slightly rearward. This causes the spark plug boot on #5 cyd (again, 3rd from the front on drivers side) to burn. I ended up removing the header and making some room on the side of that tube with a torch and a hammer (using a good size socket on an extention to pound on so the "dimple" was neater). The needed area to dent is actually towards the backside of the header tube, and is not noticed once on the engine and in the car. I also use a chunk of heat-sock over the wire end. This problem is only on the 3rd tube.. everywhere else, the headers fit great. The picture below shows this side of my engine, and if you look very closely you can see the heat sock..
