Just push that grommet back up against the bottom of the shock body, go for a drive, hit some bumps, come back and see where the grommet moved to. Of course your grommet is now saturated with oil so you might have to snug it around the shaft somehow to keep it from slipping under its own weight. If its bottoming out it would indicate the shock part# is to long for your application or you dont have bump stops on your truck or the bump stops are to short for your application.
Hence my suggestion to use a zip tie! I also noticed that it appears the upper bracket was added as I can see red urethane between the conversion bracket and the factory shock/coil spring housing. After many years of dealing with stem mount
conversion to EB type shock mounts I no longer convert the top mounts with brackets and when I do I tend to drop the lower mount further or tilt the lower part of the shock outboard wherever possible to retain the most stroke and the whole reason for a lift, being ground clearance and tire size options! Although it appears you have added lift you have limited your travel with the shock conversion bracket. The only fix are restrictive bump stops, removing your upper adapter bracket and finding a stem mount shock (impossible) or the easy way, lowering you lower mount! It is possible, you can also push out the lower mount closer to the rotors so that it is less likely to catch on a rock since I doubt you are rock crawling in a 2wd. Check your clearance with your tire mounted and turning lock to lock. You will also gain better shock damping due to the radial arc of your suspension travel, not much but every bit helps on high speed washboards travel!
