Default New Crossbars, Where to put them?

Hello,

I'm about to have my dealer put in the crossbars on my 2005 VUE. I have a Roof Top box, that I want to use with the bars.

Does anybody know which positions I should tell the dealer to put the bars? I've heard that you need to have them as far apart as possible for the box to fit.

The problem is, I have the Onstar antenna. Will the bars go over the Onstar antenna?

Tell your dealer to give you the special screw driver that comes with the crossbar kit so you can adjust them later on. Also, make sure they install all the posts that come with the kit so you actually can adjust it in the future. Or just install them yourself to ensure it gets done right.

I have a Thule Evolution roof top box. It's very long. Logic would dictate that you'd probably want the bars as far apart as possible. But even though the positioning of the Thule box is very adjustable, where it ends up with the bars in the furthest position interferres with the lift gate from opening all the way.

Where do they install the Blondstar antenna anyway?

Also remember to ask for the other hardware that comes with the kit... if you do not use Standoff #3 but #4 like I did, its a different screw...

I have an 18cuft Karrite box that is more square than long. Had to put it on #4 and #5 - just fit and it took a little convincing at that.

Thx,
AJ

Sorry, Standoff #4 and #6... would be a pretty small box if it was #4 and #5 LOL.
