Correct, as I have done strut replacement a few times, and noticed both nuts were different and thin,So there's two nuts for the strut. One the locking nut is at the top which holds the strut into the car the other is the strut top nut. Both are the same height but the upper one is a locking nut. The only reason the upper nut is thin is so you can fit the little black caps on which is why some shocks just give you a standard nylock nut for the upper.
and the Pressed nut is the Tower Nut, [Top Nut]
and the other one is the Strut Nut.
Well that's what I have always called them, to differentiate between the 2.
