KYB cartridges - can't get them secure in tube

78 242 GT. With spacers installed (correctly) the gland nuts will NOT tighten enough to keep the cartridge from moving in the tube. Without the spacer the gland nut tightens all the way down, also not preventing cartridge from moving in tube. My arthritic hands are not suspension-friendly, so installation (and subsequent attempts) is being done by independent shop (not Volvo specialists but competent). First time they've seen this problem.

Anyone have any ideas? KYB GR2's just suck?

Edit: new strut mounts also installed (Meyle)

1978 242GT

1989 244
