Almost all the robostruts have to be cut down on the top and the bushings pressed in flush. It's not a big deal to do, unless you already pressed the bushings in, then you'll have to drift them deeper to the right depth, then trim the excess off. Not a big deal again, but lining up the hole for the set-screw is a PITA.

thanks i was thinking that may be the case but was not sure as my set did not come with any bushings... curious what you mean by the set screw thing though there does't seem to be a set screw on these ones either..only one to hold the axles in place ?
