I got the lower control arms on and now need some more info about the spring seat positioning. Please see the photos and let me know if I have them on correctly. I looked at the Assembly Manual but there only seems to be one page devoted to the spring seats and that is not much info

I already know about the upper round spring seat that is positioned under the shock towers. If I can get the spring seats on, I'll move on to putting the spindles on and then the springs.

Sorry for being so much trouble guys.

NOTE: Yes, I'm going to paint the spring seats. :)

It has been so long since we have used these I do not recall the position of the spring stop....you can set the spring on the perch and see how the upper coil ends up with the top spring seat???? This way you can see what orientation is needed.

Chuck, I don't know why I didn't think about that. I guess I was going for an easy way out. I'll set the spindle in place and then compress the spring and go from there. Thanks
