From what I understand, this happens when washer is placed under the nut instead of between shaft and upper mount.

As MikeyA stated, the washer was installed in the incorrect location and the shock rod has now pushed through the upper spring seat. You'll need a new upper spring seat (I'd replace both sides), the struts will need to be disassembled to replace those parts, and then put back together ensuring the washer is in the correct location.

Thank you for the replies. Just finished the install with new strut caps. With washer in correct spot.
