Are you talking about #6 or #10 (both being "big washers") in this parts breakout:

You need big washers on the top AND bottom.

*shrug* A shock is pulled and pushed. There are two different bigass washers. One goes on top, one goes on the bottom, and if you don't get both, you're goign to keep popping shock mounts.

replace those shock mounts with rogue engineering RSMs...

www.rougeengineering.com, look under RSM, best Ive seen so far...and you never have to remove your trunk liner again to replace or adjust adjustable rear shocks.
