Default have trouble isntalling strut assembly, need help!!

Hi, folks, give me a hand,

I take off my front strut assembly and intended to install a new pair (Monore quick strut). The lower strut mount does not align with knuckle as the strut seems a little bit too long. Is there any way to compress the strut so I can align the mounting point? Or what else I should do, thanks?

Did you try prying down on the lower arm?
Could be the natural position pressure from the bushings

If GreenLantern'* advice doesn't work, double check to be sure you have the right strut assembly. Parts stores have been known to be wrong.
