The raised part where you stick your finger to open the door obviously extends beyond the body surface and the alan botl head stick up maybe .125". Its a pretty simple and clean looking install.

So after the last time I went wheeling I get a thud noise (metal hitting metal) every time I hit a large pothole or bump. It is definitely in the front diver side somewhere. After checking all the bolts and nuts and looking at everything I could think of I did find something that doesn't look right. I have a rough country 2" spacer lift.
These pics are from the oval hole under the hood where the top of the shock is bolted to the spacer.
The top pic is the passenger side (looks good). Notice that there is a bushing, then a washer, then the top nut.
The middle pic is the driver side.
It looks like the washer on this shock was never installed after the bushing and before the nut. I almost didn't even realize the nut was on the shock still, but moving the bushing slightly, I could make out that the nut was sunken in. This definitely looks like part of the problem, if not the problem. Maybe the bolt on top of the shock is making direct contact with the spacer causing the thud that I keep hearing?
The last picture is also the driver side.
Same location, and for some reason it looks like my shock is now crooked and making contact with part of the oval hole (frame).
Just wandering if anyone has some insight on if this may cause the problem or ways I can try to fix this?
