Troubleshooting Rhino-Rack Roof Rack Installation on 2018 Mitsubishi RVR Flush Rails

Question:

Ive tried to install the kit of the SX031 legs on my 2018 RVR, but if you look at the pics those legs are not straight on the flush rails so when I have the bars on them then they dont fit anymore... Am I doing something wrong or I got the wrong legs in the right box ? Thanks to have a look and to tell me whats going on with that.

The correct Rhino-Rack setup for the flush rails on your 2018 Mitsubishi RVR include the following:

49" Vortex Aero Crossbars - # RRVA126B-2
SRB Legs - # RRSX031

So the SX031 legs are definitely what you're needing. I think the problem is that you're installing the legs without the crossbar. The correct way to install the system is to connect the legs to the crossbars, place the whole assembly on your raised rails, and then adjust as needed. Since the crossbars aren't "pulling" the leg in toward the middle of the vehicle it looks and feels like it's sitting at a bad angle.

Attached is an installation video of this same system on a 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander for you to check out. If you jump to the 5:42 minute mark you'll see the installation procedure.
