what headers will fit my YJ with V8 350?

I went to putting on headers and the passenger side fit fine. Drivers side the header hit the front driveshaft! so I tried some shorter headers--stopped before hitting the driveshaft, but by the time I would have hooked up my exhaust pipe then it would hit. Any one know what brand type will work with this swap? 1989 YJ--350

I have some JC whitney "hugger headers" on mine and have several inches clearance from the shaft.

I used the Heddman hedders out of the 4 Wheel Drive Hardware catalog specifically for this swap. They worked good. I would rather the factory manifolds worked though, I'm not much of a fan of headers. I did have to weld a bung in the header for the Oxygen sensor.
