    I'm having issues with one of my bilstein shocks. I have them both set for an 1.75 but the passenger side seems to not be in place. The top bushing sets about an inch high. I can move and twist the shock with my hand. I get a concussion everytime i hit a bump. The driver side shock seems to be set in place. Was wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem or if anyone has an explanation.
