Hey everybody. I have a problem where the liftgate on my flex opens a little higher than I would like. As a result, when open, it rubs against the gasket on the bottom of my garage door. (It's a soft rubber gasket, but it also has lots of dirt and crud in it--not good for paint.) Right now my wife handles this by putting a towel on the liftgate before she opens it all the way--not too elegant.
I was thinking that I could buy a similar liftgate strut that has a slightly shorter extended length.
Has anyone tried that? Any suggestions on how to determine which strut to use? They are usually compressed in the package, so I can't just go to the parts store and compare mine to some of the others they have there.
