Rear Shock Mount installation questions

Replaced the rear shocks with 5100s this weekend and added a 1.5" Cornfed spacer on the springs. (did front 5100s last week at 1.75") Getting everything back together with the new spacers, using only floor jacks and stands, was a little tricky. I noticed, once everything was buttoned back up, the top shock mount bushings looks a little wonky. Is this something to be concerned about? Something I need to take apart and fix? They look fine from the bottom.


Also, when reattaching the rear sway bar link I noticed the little rubber boot on the link had a small tear. Not sure if I did it during disassembly/reassembly, or if it had been like that a long time. Again, how concerned should I be about that. Because TBH Im not.

Not an issue. Rear shocks are always tilted a bit like that

Did you torque that shock nut to spec? It looks over torqued.

It looks over tightened. With the vehicle sitting on the ground the nut should be tightened till that top rubber bushing is just larger than the top washer. CK your instructions for a pic.
