Hooker Super Comps needed a ding to clear the power steering box.  On cars that use the back drive you will loose that too.  Otherwise they fit. 

No matter what you buy, Ceramic coating is probably best applied after the first test fit.   :)

Stinger is talking about the back drive linkage that was new for 69.  Locks the steering column when the car is put in reverse, and also works the backup lights.

You have a different deal on your 68 so likely not a concern.

On our 69 I used Dougs Headers.  Fit and finish was nice.  I modified the #7 tube to clear my back drive linkage so it would stay functional.

I'm a Hooker fan (that didn't come out right, lol)   and run those on other cars.  Always had good fitment with those as well.
