wind noise flip top

I just replaced my original soft top with a flip top by Pavement Ends on my 2005 Jeep Wrangler. I have a problem with wind noise where the windshield header meets the top of the windshield. Do they make a wind deflector that I can put at the top of the windshield to cut down on the noise? I also have another problem with the header arm being too short to fit into the bracket above the front doors so right now I can't use the flip top. I emailed and sent pictures to Bestop with this problem and I'm waiting for their solution to this problem. But if anyone has installed the same flip top any hints would be appreciated.

I have the same problem with my 05, with a new Sunrider top. Plenty of noise from the header and the passenger side is too short . I have broken the knuckle twice on that side. I also get alot more noise from the door area. It took me a while to get it to where it wasn't leaking at both front corners. If I could I would go back with my factory top! This one pretty well sucks to this point. Let me know if you find a fix for the length problem.
Good luck

Rainmaker, We have a '09 with the flip top and it has started leaking pretty bad at both front corners also. What did you do to fix the leaking..this is the factory top.
