Open your hood, there are two rubber bumpstops on each sides of your subframe rail. They are located right above your headlights, they are circular. They are turnable, turn those until thier height is a little bit lower, but dont go too low or all the weight will be on the latch. If that doesnt help at all, take your grill and bumper off and adjust the height of your latch. See if that helps.

The stops as mentioned above should be adjusted so that the outside edges of the hood are level with the inside edges of the fender. Mine are adjusted properly, and that leaves a 1/4" gap between the headlight housing and the hood lip, when measured from the center of the headlight housing to the bottom of the hood lip.
