SGS boot struts causing boot to sit proud, scraping

Fitted a set of SGS engineering boot struts last weekend and just noticed today that the boot lid, at the hinged end, is now sitting proud.

I've also spotted that the struts themselves have come into contact with the underside of the boot lid...

Anyone else had this problem or have I just got unlucky...

just turn this catch the other way round and you should sort the problem

:lol: So I wasn't the only one. What's annoying is that fitting them the wrong way caused the boot to pop quite nicely and would clear the catch by a good margin. Now they're the right way I get issues with it not popping properly (yes I've done the penny trick).

 

Oh well.

Evidently, I fitted mine correct the first time with no issues. Cue fitting them for a friend....put them on the wrong way hahaha. Luckily noticed before I popped the ball joints in so just swapped them over dead quick.

 

My boot would also not pop removed the boot weight and fitted tap washers, fitted the SGS boom 1 finger boot pop.......Fitted Nismo V2 spoiler....back to square one lmao. Got some more tap washers somewhere so will bang another couple in.
