Bad strut insert?

The front passenger side of my 73 2.0 has a problem. I can hear a soft clunk coming from there when I'm driving the car. In the garage if you push down on the front passenger side of the car you can hear a soft clunking as you do it. I've pulled the wheel off and manually moved the suspension under there and can reproduce the sound. It seems like there's a little play in the shock (maybe 1/16th of an inch) before the shock starts damping that is causing this clunking. These are Boge shocks that the PO had installed by a Porsche dealership a few years ago. There is less than 4000 miles on them. My question is, could the shock have been installed incorrectly in a manner that would cause this symptom, or is it likely that the shock is bad? I can see no play in any of the suspension joints outwardly when I'm getting this clunk. Thanks in advance for the help.
