What brand of headstuds did you buy? ARP's have 8 in the set that are shorter than the rest to fit under each injector. H-11's are all the same lenght and should all fit just fine when installed all the way down.

If you still have the problem then your only other option would be to grind the injector hold down clamps to fit.

They did a story on this exact thing in this months diesel power mag. That guy did studs on a 7.3 and his injector plates were hitting the studs. He said to grind out the clearence on the plates and you will be fine!
