DT Long Tubes and Bodylifts

Couldn't find many definitive answers on this so figured I'd try to collect all the information in one place.
Im currently waiting to receive the DT Long Tube Headers and I've been pondering the idea of a small bodylift to better accommodate larger tires, (nothing more than a 1in or 1.5in BL though). I know that with the shorty headers there was lots of issues with body lifts causing the headers to interfere with the steering column.
So my questions are:
Is this less of an issue with the long tubes by any chance?
If not, how many people have had success with long tubes and bodylifts without "dimpleing"(destroying) the headers? (by changing out the steering column bolts for ones with flat heads possibly?)

Same exact question here. But I currently have a 1.5" BL.

I'm wondering about this as well as I have a body lift with the shorty headers and had to do puncture a few tubes to get the steering column to fit.

Who's they? They said it looks like they'll work just fine with a body lift? Not a suspension lift to be clear.

My install was the stealership (cringe, but they were the only ones willing to install new headers in my area) and when I asked after install if they needed to dimple they said no. But I donít have any lift - body or suspension so not sure if that really helps you or not...
