Printer Z offset for purge wipe offset is 1mm too tall

I have recently upgraded my MK3S to a MK3S+ it was working before however I got a jam in my hot end assembly so I figured I would do the upgrade I had laying around. after the upgrade the XYZ calibration goes off without a hitch or so it seems. I have adjusted the new PINDA sensor twice using the method in the instructions i.e. small zip tie. when i go to do the first layer calibration it purges what looks like 1mm too tall. is there any way to fix this?

The superpinda triggers higher than the old pinda. Best distance is about 1.5mm.  I made this little gadget to help find the best distance: https://www.printables.com/model/57192 (of course you need a working printer to print it ☹️). You want to try stacking two zip ties.

Thank you so much i tried the fix this morning and it helped a lot!! I have a second printer and was able to print the part for the adjustment. I appreciate the help I was spinning my gears for a few days before I posted.
