Default Rear Shock Absorbers

Someone please verify I assembled the rear shocks of my 1960 correctly. I lost track of the old ones and how the washers and grommets sandwiched.

I placed the rubber washers against the lower mounting bracket as the top of the shocks. These seem to fit the holes and position the shock absorber perfectly. In other words from the bottom up:

Nut/Washer/Grommet/Mount/Grommet/Washer/Shock/Washer/Trunk floor mount/Grommet/Washer/Nut.

All torqued to 15 Ft-Lbs.

And it seems the front uppers just can't be torqued to 25 without squishing the grommet to a pancake.
