If you're worried about the top of the struts sticking out above the strut towers, that is normal

Apparently that seems normal based on searching on the forums.. even BMR confirmed it.

Although I don't recall mine looking like that.. unless I am blind.

Turn the wheel while the car is on the ground and look how they move. Lol. It was driving me crazy at first then I found out it was normal.

If they're an uneven height left to right, know that you have to "time" the suspension bushings after changing ride height. There are various guides on this forum that explain how to do so, what it all means, why you need to do it, etc.

it is normal to have a Gap as the Strut assembly needs to rotate. It was there before, you just didn't realize it. If the Gap is Too big, then you need new Strut Bushings

It may be a bad strut, worst case. If you did the work yourself, you may want to go back and remove the one thatís sticking up. Verify everything is on correctly. Thatís what I would do.

BMR is right. I had the same "issue" called them and they said it was there before, I just didn't notice it. No problems since the install. Nothing to worry about!
