When you get the parts kit in, I would be interested to know what they send that's different. Swapping the thick Washer to a much thinner Shim (that you can buy for less than $1 if you don't already have it) is a very easy and effective solution.

The torque on the shock is excessive, it needs a thick base plate to spread the force that is why DZ didn't just send a thin washer.
