    If you remove the ears from the ignition switch you will most likely snap the key off after a short time.

    Dremel or Die Grind the two ears until the key fits, that works.

    No I don't speek of experience. I just know that the key lock needs more pressure turning it than just from the key alone. Jdinner probably has the best solution by removing some of the ears. Just not all of it.

    I've replaced more than one GM ignition cylinder from people with all kinds of junk or keys on their keychain. The weight begins to wear out the guts of it over time, and it will eventually turn without the key, or not at all. Either way, they're kind of weak, and not meant for that. Now the Chrysler lock cylinders are better for that, so that's an option, because the Sebring column is popular from what I've seen.
