Strut tower cap popped off??

Hi everyone.
Have a question if anyone knows the answer to. Couple of days ago I popped the bonnet & realized the cap on the strut tower was sitting abit high. Then on closer inspection it looks like the gut of the strut tower is trying to push through. Has this happened to anyone before or would know what would've cause it. Also how can I fix it. Thanks.

Ok - as per the link as well, worn shock and stuffed bump stops can cause it to happen..

Do you think I should purchase some new ones. I have a spare parts in the shed. Including a whole VL front end. They look OK. Just needs a clean up. How do you know if there OK. Just inspect for cracks or wearing??
Thanks
Are new ones expensive?
