Install & Replace

Lowering the height of a door header.

I plan to install bypass doors to separate the master bathroom from the bedroom.  The finished opening is 60' x 85".  The doors we want to purchase are 60' x 85".  Obviously, I need to lower the header 5 inches.  What is the best way to do so that the weight of the bypass doors are properly supported? And, do I need to remove any of the existing finished sheetrock?

 

Help please....need to have it complete in about 2 wks.

 

 

Thanks
