Keep in mind that the previous shocks might have been wrong. If their bushing was a bit too short, the lower housing might have been bent a bit when the bolt was tightened.
I read what you did, and that may work, but I seem to recall that the shock should be centered on that bushing. If you care to, measure the length of the old bushing and I can do the same here and we can figure out which is right.
My old 72 rear subframe is sitting in my yard right now and I can easily measure the width of the opening where the shock fits. Of course we're supposed to get 5" of snow this afternoon, but that won't bother this measurement.
I also have the old shocks that came out of there (OE VW type 3) that I can measure.
