Default Retract Q

HI
I just bought some mech retracts from hobbico to install on a GP p-51 kit that I am building. I have realized that these retracts are WAAAY to long for my wing. The plan shows a wheel location that these retracts would not be able to accomodate (too Long). Should I cut the retracts? Thanks for any advice.

Cut and rebend the strut to match the plans.
