Prepping SSD Swap, what is the maximum thickness of the drive?

I put the cart in front of the horse a little bit and I ordered the SSD before doing all of my research. I am seeing that all of the SSDs offered by iFixit for this machine are 7.0 mm and it appears the drive I ordered is a 10 mm drive. Am I going to run into space issues?

Ouch! Millimeters do matter here. Apple doesn't leave much free space.

Just the same you maybe OK here if you put the SSD in the top bay as the clearance is a little bit more. The HD's Apple uses are 9.5 mm in height so your SSD is 0.5 mm higher. Good Luck!
