Exclamation Urgent, help needed! BC Racing Coilover Install

So we've installed my BC racing coil overs, we're all finished up, and noticed we have two pieces left over. Pictures of the piece are below. I believe this goes under the spring in the rear, but I'm not sure. Does anyone know? I think we reused the OEM part instead of this piece. Would it be okay to use the OEM part rather than this part? Thanks.

Edit: I called BC just now and from what I described to them, they said it is just a spacer for if you don't want to use the height adjustable top for the springs in the rear, instead you can use that but it won't be height adjustable. That sound right to you guys?

I ended up not using that part at all.

I had the rear noise problem as well. Scared the shit out of me. The rears were clattering constantly. You need to take the OEM bump stops, cut them off the washer and nut they are glued to, and put them on the top of the struts in the rear. The problem will be minimized but not completely resolved.

I've got them on a fairly stiff setting, so it's bumpy but I don't mind. Not sure how the compare to other coil overs, this is my first set.
