Nismo Strut Bar doesn't fit STune Rear Dampers

Bit of a strange one, anyone come across it before please:

At the weekend I changed my Zeal coil-overs to Nismo S-Tune's and the top mounts have a larger rubber mount, compared to the pillow ball of the Zeals, which the strut bar does not fit over. I wouldn't usually worry but its a really nice brace, and I have the matching front so ideally I would like to keep it.

Does anybody know if different "ends" were ever available? Looking at it, I would expect for it not to fit over the OEM coilovers also, which is a little odd. It cannot be spaced as there is not enough thread on the studs.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Regards

Richard.

The style I have is very similar, if not the same to this:

Bit of a while since you posted this but I have the exact same problem.

Nismo rear brace won't fit on Nismo S-tune coilovers. Bit of a bummer.

had the same issue with nismo rear bar and s-tune suspension.

bought a new rear bar nismo for r32 GTR and it fit perfectly

so 2 posibilities :
-old nismo bar r32 gtr don't fit s-tune suspension, new ones does
-old bar are not for r32 GTR but for "standard" skyline sold from japan as GTR ones
