Has anyone ever installed one of these bars on a k5? I'm having a shop install it now and they are having an issue with the airbag dump tube being in the way, trying to figure out how to get around it? It seems that the Korean K5s do not come with one.

I'm speculating here, and I can't see the details on how it bolts on, but I wonder if you can use a stack of washers, or some tubing, with a longer bolt, to move the bar inward, away from the airbag thing?

It might need to be deformed, or you can have a welder cut out a section of the middle of the main bar and reweld it?
