Help with strut install

I am installing koni orange WITH H&r springs. How tight should the top nut be? I tried as much as i can by holding the nut via socket & vice grip and using a hex key with pliers. I still some gap at the bottom of top plate & shaft where there is 45 deg slope. I am attaching pics. One side is slant so i know i got to redo to align. The nut is definately pita. Koni uses 22 mm nut as compared to 21mm stock.
