The torque specs are as follows:
U bolts: 75 ft-lbs
Shackle bolts, and all others connecting the spring to the truck are 89#
Lower shocks mounting bolt is 74#, and the top nut is 15#

The end with the single spring mounts to the shackles (left side in pic below) and the one that looks like two springs bend in a circle mount to the front (right side in pic below).

My e-brake line is just free floating, has been fine for the last 4months!

I never even tried too, but you could probably figure out a way to do it, but I've checked on it frequently and there's no signs of wear (on the outside), and it pulls/stretches with the truck when it flexs

The 2nd gens I've installed rear springs on have been on center eye to eye, meaning theres no "longside" or "shortside" like on 1st gens, maybe a dumb question but sure you got the right springs ?? (srry man , had to ask)

Thank God for that one huh !!! Looks like you have a stout side & a slightly thinner side is this right or is it my senior eyes playing games with me ? If I'm right I'd put the stout side forward & the more flexible side to the back...
