That was in another forum regarding Steeda strut covers. I don't have them on my car, but I have seen them on other cars. I have not heard of an instance where they rub. They don't sit much higher than the batterly. I am sure Steeda has done their homework on these. "Steeda went the extra mile to include this kit with o-rings to prevent it from rubbing on the top of the strut tower and removing paint." I doubt they would miss something like the hood coming out of alignment.
