  Nearly every strut I've done on one either has the wrong 
nut (internal vs external thread, or wrong size thread..) strut 
won't fit in one of the nuts or something!
  Last one on the Rabbit would grab about one thread and 
bottom out (only the old nut would fit of course).  I ened up 
having to get someone turn out the inside of each nut about 
.050 as I recall so it'd clear over the top of the cartridge.
  If you're bottoming out on the top of the cartridge and there's 
enough thread to hold it on then you should be fine. 
  Dont forget to fill the gap with some oil to transfer the heat 
from the cartridge to the housing so it can cool.
