Question on hood alignment issues

I meant to post this awhile ago, but managed to foget about it. I purchased and installed (yes on my own) MRT hood struts. Now I have an alignment problem. On the passenger side, the hood is raised too high in the rear and ever so slightly too low in the front, while the driver side is ever so slightly raised int he rear, but appears to be good in front. I do not see any adjustments on the hood struts. Any advice on how to properly align the hood with the rest of the body panels? Anyone have this problem?

just a shot in the dark here, i'm by no means into much body work but you could try adjust the front hood stops to help raise the front a bit, which it turn might help lower the back?

My car is at the body shop right now (getting aduck tial spoiler painted and instaleld as well as installing a light bar). I showed the hood issue to the body guy, he looked at it and could not find any room for adjustment. I grant he only looked at it for a moment,
