struts frozen or not will not control how close the tires are to the strut. The tire and lower portion of the strut move of one. The compresson/rebound point is about the strut base

Testimonial: "The response was helpful, although I already had a motorhead buddy come over and got them off for me. Thanks for the response!"
You'll need to open the trunk and remove the trim along the top of the trunk. The trim will be secured by some screws that should be along the perimeter of the trim. Once the screws are out, gently pop the trim off (there will be retaining clips that you don't want to break) and then you can access the bolts securing the spoiler onto the trunk. If you plan to not use a spoiler, you will need to find something to plug up the holes to prevent water and dust from getting into the trunk.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.
When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.
one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts
two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.
Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!
