F350 V10 exhaust leak

I just bought a 2002 F350 CC 4x4. It has the exhaust leak on the passenger side. From what I understand this is a common problem. What I was wondering if there is a good fix for this so it wont happen again.
Thanks for the help!
Matt

is it a real pain to place the studs? I know there are three that are broke right now. Is it a dealer only job? I work on CNC machinery everyday so I would much rather do it myself but thought I would get some pointers from guys that have already done this.
Thanks
Matt

Install headers with copper gaskets. It is a PIA to say the least.

There's some good reading on this down in the V10 forum. Here's a couple with some good how to steps and remediation ideas to get you started:

Absolutely!

But you can do it yourself.
