Rear Shocks XC90 2008

Just replace the rear shocks. 100000 on the vehicle. Dealer had replaced struts and said rear shocks were leaking. Saw no sign of leak, plus after pulling shocks I was unable to compress piston. Removed units were Sachs self leveling Nivomat shocks P/N 30683451. My question; post installation I noted that the boot on the left shock is turned a bit. The right side looks straight and good. Can I expect the boot to self correct it self after some road action of the shock or am I looking at rework on that left side to straighten the boot? I used an air gun to install the top lock nuts and did not hold the piston shaft. Probably this is why the boot rotated a bit. Thoughts or reports of past experience regarding this condition is appreciated.
