I just remembered- the new shocks came with 1 nut- is that the 'nylock' type one? The original struts had 2 nuts, and I re-used those as i could only get the one that came with the bilsteins threaded down a certain amount- is this how the nut is supposed to work? I though there was something wrong with it so i used the originals, but maybe the new nut works in the way you're suggesting so it doesn't compress the rubber too much?
