2004 F-250 - Rancho 9000xl Shock Question

I bought the rancho 9000xl shocks for my 2004 f-250. I took the fronts off and put the new ones on. The problem I have is the lower bracket. The old shock had rubber bushing that took up all of the space in the bracket. The new shocks bushings don't take up the whole gap, however the metal part that the bolt slides through does take up all of the space in the bracket. Is this normal or do I need to add something? If y'all need me to take a picture and post it, I will. Thanks for any help.

you should be fine, if you like get some larger center diameter fender washers, they will swallow the center sleeve and keep the shock from walking side to side on the bushing
