recessed lights bad install needs a fix

We installed dozens of recessed light cans to the appropriate levels based on the can instructions. Sheetrock was hung and now the cans are not able to make contact with the finish collars. We've tried pulling the cans down to no avail. Any suggustions? Is there a fix-it I can go buy?

No picture, no brand name of fixture mentioned.
So is the fixture flush with the sheetrock?
Any I've work with does not matter exactly where the fixture sits as long as it's not sticking out past the sheetrock, the springs pull the trim ring up tight to the ceiling.
