Carbon Fiber Trunk Issues..

    I got my cf trunk put in last year and I've always had issues with it as far as fitment and alignment. I'm aware that cf pieces will never fit exactly how factory does but it shouldn't be this way off. I almost have a 1" gap on one side & the glass sticks up way past the body of the car. I actually dont even care about the gap because I dont get any leaks, but the glass sticking up urks me! I heard its probably because when they installed it they put the glass for last, when in reality they were suppose to put that glass on the trunk, then install the trunk on the car, would that make a difference?? also, I still have the stock shocks it came with, do I need to buy "low pressure" shocks?? alsooo, the inside pieces dont even latch in correctly anymore -___-

    Is anyone else having these issues??
    from what i remember a friend of mine had stock shocks on his cf hatch and that's what gives the gap between hatch and car. he took the shocks of and it fit a lot better
    Correct^

    Having the stock shocks on will have your trunk sit alot higher. Plus im amazed you havent hit your chin when opening it ( i almost did cause it sprang open O_O). So i just unhooked them and pop them in when i need my trunk open. I manually open my trunk though. There's after market trunk shocks you can purchase.

    I had no idea you can remove them and keep them off. Thanks for the input.

    LOL! I havent hit my chin yet by luck but I almost have a couple of times -____-

    I have no idea how to unhook them, but i'll figure it out. & thanx for the link!
    Im a little late responding but they're right it's because of the stock struts. There too strong for the light cf and actually cause it to bow out. I recommend getting them off ASAP. I had mine on for only about a week and they actually caused the glass to come off from them pushing out in the middle of the hatch when it's closed.
    Yes best thing you can Do is remove the stock shocks use a flat head real easy to remove. Have some one hold the trunk when doing this cause it will fall .
