removing headers

From your description you have headers above two 9' doors that support 2x12x10 joists on 24" centers that support a floor. I assume those joists are supported on a beam, and probably a post in the center of the garage as well. You definitely need to support that floor while the headers are removed. Failure to properly support the floor will result in a dangerous condition during your work and possible structural failure.
