Hi All,

I've got a 2008 2.5i w/ the stock roof rack/bars. Many years ago, before a move across the country, we bought a Yakima SkyBox to pack as much as we could for the trip. That said, the box is just a bit too long, and the rear spoiler hits the underside of the box when the hatch is opened; I've maxed out how far I can push it forward w/ my current setup, but it still doesn't clear. If I'm careful I can open the hatch slowly and let it rest against the box, but all too often there's a huge CRUNCH as the spoiler wedges under the box. It's a huge PITA.

Is there an easy (and cheap!) way to raise the SkyBox a few inches? Move it forward a few?

Any ideas greatly appreciated!
