Replacing Boot Door problems

So im replacing my boot door on my 02 zx5 and it has to be adjusted quite accurately so that it will clear the lock the problem is that its not clearing the lock when the hydraulic braces are on but when their off it clears it any ideas why this doesnt work

Just a guess here:

The parts supplier RockAuto.com shows several different rear hatch lift cylinders, with different sizes and force ratings for the first gen Focus.

Perhaps you have a mismatch of parts with that new boot/hatch you are installing.
