Question Struts not installed correctly

I installed a M-3000-ZX3A SVT suspension this past Friday. The struts, and front springs came pre-assembled. After I put everything on, I noticed the lock nut on the top of the strut wasn't all the way down to the o-ring. I tried to tighten them, and broke the allen socket.

EDIT: Both left, and right struts are like this.

Anyone else have this issue? There are no noises, and no other issues. Am I worried for nothing?
