Blew Rear shock mount, Washers??

I replaced the rear shocks in my car, and it came with two washers, one concave a bit more than the other, which one goes on the bottom and which one goes on the top??
I did not use one on the bottom and within 3 miles it blew the rubber..
Any one have a diagram??

bigger flatter one on the bottom to catch the bump stop.

Does this help?

EDIT: Just an FYI, saw this on the facebook page, ignore the masses and find real exploded diagrams.
