the problem is that the virtue eyes have a large amount of solder where they apply the led to the eye ribbon..
you can go about fixing this one of two ways... which eye covers do you have? do you have the stock composite ones or aftermarket aluminum ones?
if composite then you can take a dremel or a file and remove some of the solder on the eyes and this will make them more flush (i have personally done this method and it works fine.. just be careful and do not take too much off..)
if you have metal eye covers you can drill out some of the recessed area where the eyes are on the eye covers themselves.. be careful to not drill all the way through the eye covers as this would just be plain silly
good luck and i hope that helps you..
edit... and i think the reason the eyes "fixed" your roll back problem was possibly due to faulty eyes.. or mis aligned eyes... but i am glad you got it working...
