In fact I put them in and buttoned it all up, but when I looked from the front underneath the hub/knuckle area it was clear one was higher up, so I did them both again and they both had more room to go.
I did do my own install. Even if you slide the notch on the strut into the grove of the hub/knuckle... does it mean it doesnt automatically seat correctly?? Doesnt the grove stop half way down so the notch sits in that grove?? I hope i'm making sense and we are on the same page.
