    Exclamation Boot strut adjustment

    I was wondering if there was something I can adjust with the Boot Struts to shorten the height of the rear boot lid.

    I want it so it doesn't go as far back as it normal does.


    Any body know if I can do this ?

    Most struts have similar balljoints. If you can get to a scrappy, see if they'll let you try any shorter ones you can find.
