First off you don't retain the stock strut tops. So, an assembled strut with cornfed spacer should have the spacer on top, followed by both the factory rubber insulator and the supplied one, then the coil. It sounds like everything is A O.K. except for not using the factory rubber spacers. If you have any more questions I'd be happy to help.

Yeah thats the way I thought it went I drove up to the shop who had put it together and tried to help him with it and there is no way to use the factory top plate with that lift. It assemblied right accept for them not but putting the factory rubber back on top of the coil then the rubber supplied then the cornfed spacer. You just thread bolts in from the top right? B/c no studs were included in his kit.

You need to have the shop re-install the factory rubber bushing. A place did the same thing to me. I contacted David and he said that piece is necessary to keep the coil centered properly.

got it figured out. the kit did come with six new bolts. i assume these go through the top and into the spacer. no where in the instructions did it say where these bolts go. no where did it even remotely say how the top of the coil attached to the truck. this is needed badly for people like me. i am going to write a laymans style install for this kit. i know with all the spacer lift's out there someone has to have real step by step install instructions with pictures. going back to the shop in the a.m. and get this shiz nick straight. any way i got the back finished up tonight and will have the front done tomorrow. thanks for all your help and information. this site rules it rules. :)

When you have the shop install the rubber piece, make sure they orient the holes in the spacer relative to shock mounting correctly.
