I always sorta duck as I get out of my car. I just figured that's how the doors were. Then I was installing a speaker on the passenger side today and as I opened the passenger door, I noticed how nice and tall it opens - no ducking needed. The passenger door opens 4" higher than the drivers. With both doors open, this is very noticeable.
Neither door goes up fully on it's own. They both go to a halfway point and I need to push them the rest of the way. I have brand new Stabilius struts (from Hervey) installed and I figured a torsion bar setting was in order at some point. Once I push them fully open, they do stay up.
What's stopping the driver door from going any further is the strut being at full extension. I've measured both struts and they seem to open up the exact same amount.
I can't immediately see a fix for this, as it looks like there is no adjustment where the struts attach. Other than moving the door closer to the outside of the car (and I've read bad things about messing with the door mounts) I can't see how I could fix this. Besides, when the doors are closed, they look pretty even. Unless I were to get a strut that was 1/2" longer on full extension?
