Sorry you don't have an answer, but your post didn't make any sense to me and possibly to others. Pictures also help

my first question is what brand are the parts?
did they all come together as a kit?
or are you mixing and matching parts brands/suppliers?

if they all came together from the same place, i would be on the phone to the supplier.

if you bought all the parts from different places, you could maybe use a washer (i would not recommend this)
but i bet you could get a taller castle nut.(i would recommend this one though)

The thick washer goes between the castle nut and the spindle for any MII spindle using the Chrylser ball joints.
