TC Kline/Koni Rear Shock Install Question

Anyone know if you are supposed to reuse the oem rear upper shock mounts when you install new tc kline/koni rear shocks. I'm asking because the oem upper rear shock mount....the piece with the nut integrated into it with yellow foam, doesn't kit over the thread on the new rear shock. Plus the tc kline/konis come with several washers that make up for not using the oem mounts. The only difference is that there is no yellow foam....its all metal on metal.

Is this right, or is there something that I'm missing when I'm doing the install?

There should be some kind of insulation between the washers and car body like foam, rubber, polyurethane...
Those Koni/TCK external adjust shocks, like Dinan, have a larger diameter thread than oem shocks. If TCK doesn't have/provide upper shock mounts that fit, you can get them from Powerflex or Dinan.
I'd start by asking TCK
