Upper shock mount - is this an issue?

Had everything re-torqued after the lift, and the upper shock mounts were torqued to 70 ft lbs. The left side looks fine, but on the right, it appears the part of the body/frame that the bolts go through curved in some, and the bushing has been squashed out some. I do have a washer in there on one side of the bushing (can't see it here) so it was pretty tight to begin with. Is this an issue? I hear a little bit of creaking back there on bumps, not sure if it has to do with this or not.

If I remember correctly, the washers goes between the shock mount and shock itself to avoid bending that area. I never had a washer between the bolt/body like you have in the picture.

I see. I just assumed it couldn't hurt anything. No issue on the other side, only difference is it doesn't have a washer I'm the location that you specified like the pictured side actually does.
