down to same diameter as the metal washer. is that good enough? cuz i
think theyre too loose..

I think you got some play in those , I've always tightened the top nut till the whole thing turns with it , ( we're talking about a steel shaft that goes in and out of the shock itself right )? You can put pliers above the nut if you want them tighter but probably not necessary

Tighten it some more to see if it sounds better. Better yet, get a torque wrench. You can pick one up for less than $20 at Harbor Freight with a 20% coupon.
