Kook's install ?'S

I bought some used 1 7/8 Kooks with off road pipes.

1)Does the steering shaft need to be taken apart?
2)Do both headers slip in from the bottom side?
3)I have read that some people are having issues with the threads on the o2 sensors is this a hit or miss thing or should I put some heat on them before I back them out or penetrating lube?
4)Has anyone used o2 spacers with any success?

No on the steering shaft, if you can get the car up high enough, both will come out the bottom. The hardest part was getting the drivers side off, but it does come out the bottom.

Installation is from the bottom as well.

Installs easy from the bottom.

Never heard mention on here about O2 sensors but I had a bitch of a time. Just pass side. Used a O2 socket and everything, acted like it was cross threaded from the factory. Broke free then tightened up. Didn't want to tighten back up or spin out. Driver side broke free then spun out by hand.

Use a Torch and heat up AROUND the O2 sensor and it will come out like butter.

The headers fit like a glove. They both will slide up from underneath and there is no need to remove anything except the old exhaust.

I sprayed my O2 sensors with penetrating lube every night for a week before I installed my headers. Went to Autozone and loaned out an 02 wrench. It was cake taking them out.. 2 of them were cross threaded, but I didn't even need a breaker bar to free them. I think the key is to go through a couple of heat cycles with the penetrating lube. They should break free really easily.
