Looks like you are losing your nuts. Lots of torqueing about that.

A lucky ride for sure.

The shock didn't move because the lagguage support. I don't know how Many kms I rode without nut. Anyway, I am still riding the bike, but after that, I spent Many hours checking the importants part s of the bike for my security.

Now is a perfect time to replace the threaded stud after that unknown period of time with the added stress of the shockie end floating about. They break.

Pardon my lack of pun.

That could have ended very badly!  I'm happy you didn't have an accident. 
Did you recently remove the shock?  I don't know what the factory procedure was, but some thread locker on that fastener may be a good idea.
