    if you take the door card off then u may be able to bend the wire there attatched to to make them stick up less?

    I cut the rears with a dremel to make them sit correctly.

    I'll take some pics of them on the car and post them up shortly.

    Mine were second hand, may be Irmscher, have twin rubber O rings. The rear ones were trimmed to sit at same height of fronts, but even at best I could do, the bottooooooom O ring and above shows.

    Hope this helps.

    I did want them to go a tiny bit lower but then that means removing the door cards. A bit too much hassle just to fit door pins.

    Heres what mine look like.

    Front Up



    Front Down



    Rear Up



    Rear Down



    Rears cut down to around 42mm

    cutting the pins down won't make them sit any lower unless your cutting that length off the top of the pin! it's the depth of the hole or the length of the rod that defines the height of the pin! you will need to drill the hole of the doorpin deeper or cut the rod shorter
