Default Strut bar, help!

I have just finished installing the BTG shock strut bar. I am concerned because the two lines that go to the # 2 solenoid valve are jammed against the fender well also the strut bar is touching the EVAP purge hose.
Anyone encounter these problems?

Was thinking of putting one in this summer but now I will have to research it more.

I have played around with it and I think I got the hoses to the solenoid unjammed.

I had to bend the solenoid bracket just a little to get the clearence I wanted for my BTG. Everything clears by at least 1/8 inch except the cruise control cable, but I don't see that as a problem. The bar is not stainless, but extruded aluminum and cleans up nicely with Never Dull pads.

Yeah, it is a tight squeeze in there. Barely room to get the acorn nut on the bolt.
Didn't have to bend the bracket tho.

I cut the acorn off the nut with a hack saw, on the cruise actuator side just in case. Wouldn't have fit otherwise.
