I don't think that is the problem - all the ones I've replaced have been like that too (I've had to lift release arm a little to attach the ball joint) and they have always worked fine. In fact, better than before, as there is less handle lift required to open the door.

Sounds more like something is stopping the arm lift high enough, not too much...
