Install lowering springs have problem

I put on new springs today and noticed the strut covers don't go all the way down like they used to. Is this correct or is something wrong?

Nah you're good, that's just how it is with lowering springs and McPherson struts. Here's a picture of mine to make you feel better...

Sorry it's sideways (I don't know how to right it) but you can see we have the same looking strut covers

That happened to me when I had to remove the struts to get the Strut tower brace installed. Still on factory springs though

It is completely normal. Nothing to worry about.

Very normal.

Oh well, I guess I am just well versed in doing these.

Here you go

That little space between the retaining washer and the shock tower gives the washer clearance to pivot when you turn the steering wheel of the car so like everyone else said it is perfectly normal and you are good to go.

Watch and see why the space is there.
