Default Odd endlink bushing bulge?

Put new endlinks on today. Had wheels off to paint caliper so access was easy. Car was on jack stands, I jacked up control arm, and also sway bar, so removal and installation was not difficult. However, the bulge in the top bushing is pretty odd. Does it look like this on others that have replaced endlinks with Energy Suspension kit? If not, what is the fix? Here'* some pix with 2 different views. Thanks

It will be fine. As the suspension flexes it will seat where it needs to be

Looks like the pictures were taken with the car off the ground, suspension hanging? When things are in their usual positions, everything should figure itself out.
