Fitted kw coilovers now knocking over bumps

I only fitted the kw coilovers to my clio 200 in work! its registered 2010! Now there is a bad knocking noise coming from the front when hitting bumps!! I had a problem when fitting them, the top mount bearings, if anyone has fitted these coilovers before will know there is a cup that sits on the spring for your top mount to sit onto, but my top mount the lip on the bottom would not fit into the cup but could set ontop of cup and tighten the strut top onto the cup straight, but when i checked after driving one side of the top mount had fell into the cup making the top mount un even! would this be the noise? has anyone else had problem like this with kw coilovers or is the top mount too big i need to get smaller ones or do i need to remove part of the strut top? I bought these off k tec and i asked will my top mounts fit these coilovers all right and they told me they would!
