Eh, mine is like that and I don't stress about it. I would only be worried if the spring is contacting the bare metal due to a torn seat.
I'm trying not to stress about it, but being that I'm in full storation mode on this car, have the money to get it done instead of buying a new car and don't want to have to concern myself about it for a while, I really expect nothing to be half-assed. So when I run into people doing the work trying to come up with excuses, just ticks me off.
Meanwhile, I'll see what the technician at the dealer says tomorrow. If he says it should be changed, I'll be giving the shop that did the suspension work a call. If he says it should be fine, I'll just let it go... at least for now.
