I'm preparing to install this kit, or at least most of it, myself. I have a few questions before starting this endeavor. Starting with the following picture:
I have 8, approx 4.25", rings that I don't know what to do with.
Also, the two metal plates with the bolts on the far right of this picture: what are they for?
I didn't get the entire kit. I don't have longer u-bolts or a new center pin.
I also don't have many of the smaller parts, screws and washers as shown in this picture.
The coils did not come pre-assembled, so that's par for the course. A question on that: It looks to me that the ring used to adjust your shock settings bears the full weight of the compressed springs when installed. Sure, there is something between that ring and the actual spring, but it still rests on that little $0.01 piece of aluminum used to set your shocks. There is one piece I have not been able to piece together yet: the aluminum cylinder with the adjustable ring on threads. It's pictured in the assembled coils but I'm unsure how to assemble it correctly.
What am I missing?
