Brass Donuts or Bellowed Up Pipes

I am debating between getting the up pipes from international or getting new stock up pipes and using the beans diesel performance brass gaskets. Any thoughts? I wouldn't mind saving a little cash, but I want to make sure the leak is fixed for good. Thanks!

If you get new stock pipes then I dont see why you would have a problem. I just replaced the gaskets and used the old pipes and it paid off cause the leak is gone.

I have put on brass donuts and never had a problem with them sealing, even on used up pipes. I have also taken them off, using a torch, and reused those brass donuts from Beans. I use chevy exhaust donuts, F17250, on my truck and have never had a leak since I went that route back in 06 or 07. I have even reused the same set of donuts up three times and never had a leak.

Are the bellowed up pipes now available for the early 99? When I checked a couple of years ago they were only available for the 99 1/2 and up.
