I3 pro C: nozzle higher than extruder carriage after homing?

Guys, if you have run into a problem that the nozzle is higher than the extruder carriage after homing, like this one below:

Then don't worry, check the solution here:
Unscrew the upper nuts on extruder as the picture shows, and then lower down the two hotends to a proper height, and that's all.
But note that don't touch the nut on the heater block if not necessary, or it might leak!

I think this design is faulty, it pass only to very long heatbreak and is a nonsense. But if you tighten the extruder plate with screw of upper side of bottom bearing bracket this will lower entire mounting enough for your.

You see, I used M5x6 screw. Bearing bracket must be drill to 5mm at this point. Be aware, it is not so easy.
