Well it finally happened to me. I got this truck brand new (2002 F-250 Lariat CC SWB 4X4 V10) and it's only got 30,000 miles on it! I heard a slight exhaust leak so I checked it out and found that the two upper stud nuts were rusted off on both sides and possibly the lower ones also. I was wondering if I should go with the SS replacement studs or should I go with SS bolts instead of the studs? What do ya'll think? Thanks.
SS studs. I couldn't get my parts guy to look for SS nuts and washers so I went and found my own. I hear you need to check the stock logs for twisting also. good luck it's a lot of fun if you do it yourself!
Do a search on ebay headers.
Many have installed. Some had issues with cracking after a couple years.
