VFN hood and stock hood struts

Anyone else having issues with the stock hood struts? My hood won't fit flush with the fender when the struts are connected. My car is a 94 not a 97 it just has the front end coversion. Are the body mounts for the struts different? I noticed at Napa that they list different struts for 89-95 and 96-97 birds. Any ideas?

probably, but if you bought new hood struts that hood will bow like you'd never believe. best bet is a junk yard, look for ones that wont hold up a stock hood but still work slightly

How long ago did you get the hood? I think they were supposed to fix the rear mounting area.
