Default Jake's 5" questions

Ok, got my kit today, it has 4 heavy washers with it, are they for the shocks on top? Or are they for the bottom of the A-frame mount? The large (rear portion) of the A-frame mount is narrower than the stock A-frame, and just isn't quite kosher to me. Wasn't sure if the washers (which are convex type) were to shim up the extra play there, or if they are to put on both sides of the shock on the top mount since it is just a piece of round stock that the shock mounts to.

The instructions don't go very far into detail.
Everything else is very simple.

They are not for the shock but for the A-arms. Flat side to the bushing. Here is a pic of mine installed.

Apparently mine is missing the tube and bolt between the A-arm mounts.
