    Mine did this when actuator was wound up too much as the VXR unit actuator was set to LEH setting and not LET setting. I just wound it down to only 4 threads showing and boosts fine now.

    From bottom of the rod to the first nut.

    Just make sure you tighten them nice and tight or this could happen.
