Maybe the shop isn't holding the piston in place when installing the top hat nut?

Iíve done a lot of struts and shocks with an impact. Havenít blown one yet. Did the BRZ springs with an impact and no compressor. Iíve never seen springs with so little (almost zero) preload.

OP, do you see any visual damage to your shock towers?

If the guy installing it is zipping the upper mount on with an impact and spinning the shaft too much it could be undoing in the nut inside the strut. If the same guy did all the replacements I'd bet even more on that.
