Body mount sleeve too long?

Bought some new body mounts but when iv installed them its almost like the sleeve is too long causing the bottom washer to hit it and tighten the nut before the rubber is compressed. Has anyone else found this? Seems i have to shorten the sleeve?

Re: Coiled turqoise samurai

Managed to do some more, one more weld on the rear shock mounts and its ready to be painted. Going to use por 15 on the chassis. Also need the underneath of body painting so it can go back together for the final time.
