So I installed today, but the bottom pivot head rubs against the joint pin of the hinge. The bracket is an exact fit to the square opening, so no adjustment there. Then the shaft of the gas cylinder just fits into the opening of the trunk trim. Any easy way to move the trunk bracket over a little?
I was getting ready to tell you I installed mine last night and no issues what so ever. Then I thought I would take a closer look before posting. Sure enough mine rubs the lower ball exactly as you mentioned.
It does not appear to hurt or hinder anything but I think I will remove the lower bracket and bend it about 1/8" and I should be good to go.
