Rear shock mount problem??? HELP

so I installed my coilovers this weekend, and they ride amazing..... but for some reason my rear shock keeps busting out of the mount and out of its position.

do I need a stronger mount? or am I completely installing it wrong?

thanks rob

Stock mounts shot!! if you want to improve without paying a ton, get some Meyle HD mounts. You can more expensive mounts @ local shops and sponors.

Even with Meyle HD mounts, if the cups (metal cups) are not installed it will bust the mount over and over again.

#10, and #6 mainly
