CBR shock install problem...

I took this shock directly from an 88 750 which my dad was putting a stock shock back in to. I used the CBR shock on this same bike at the track and found it worked great.

I tried to install it into a different frame, but still an 88-89 750 frame and swinger, and it doesn't fit...

not sure wtf is going on. the bottom bolts up fine, but when I try to bolt the top the casting on the top mount hits the frame, and the top mount will not line up.

am I doing something wrong here? I am know the top shock mounts changed between years, but didn't think there was any difference in this aspect of the bracket.
