Default Which Ebay headers?

I only found two options. Are either of these a good choice for a shorty header?

Looks just like the set I bought a few years back from SSAutoChrome.

They added some decent performance for the money and were easy enough to install. I ran them for just over 2 years until I found them both cracked.

Thats not really always true. (look at fram garbage).. Some companies just have bigger markups and better marketing.a lot of ebay stuff is made by the manufacturers of the big name stuff, just without the distributor putting their name on it and doubling the price...sometimes it junk sometimes its just as good or even better... best thing to do is get feedback from actual owners of the product and not those who are just speculating... remember china has come a long way in the last few years...the products have changed a bit... even craftsman tools are made there now along with most of the worlds crankshafts...

I just ordered some ebay headers after going through the sellers past purchases of those headers and contacting those who had them for a while.... everyone recommended them and said they turn brown but otherwise are holding up great...I have to replace my pacesetters which cost twice as much and cracked right at the collector...they are also rusting badly so...

They don't make LT headers for your truck? I wouldn't get those buddy, if you go cheap my advice is to use all different hardware cause I bet those header bolts will snap.

+1^^ yes I do agree with that...mine came with grade8 stainless bolts and felpro gaskets but many do come with crappy bolts and no name gaskets which get mixed reviews..

One more thing and then I will shut up.. The Mopar performance headders I put on my 5.2 in 1999 are still on the truck and one of my warehouse guys is still driving the truck.. the finish is all gone after 12 plus years but they are still on there.
