Questions Regarding: rear shock lower mount, engine noise after stalling

I've got two unrelated questions:

1. Today I was driving up a very steep one lane road, and had to stop to let another car go by. I started to go up again, letting out the clutch and all that, but the engine died. It lugged pretty bad, and I may have rolled backwards with the clutch out. It made the most awful clunking/clacking noise, and even a sort of clicking/tapping noise a couple times as it stopped.

I restarted it, and it felt very rough, the gear shifter was shaking, the whole car was sort of rumbling, the RPM's were pulsing, and it just felt and sounded horrible. I took off, revved it up, seemed to work fine. What could have happened!??!

2. This is an easy one. When I tightened down my new rear shock bolts, the little flange spun a little as shown. Does it matter?

Normal:


Spun a little:

I have checked the guibo and it's still good, plus I don't think it would suddenly go bad.

They do go bad out of the blue, especially when you put more load on them, like going uphill. You are fine on the rear shock mounts.
