So I finally got some time tonight to work on my Springs. Got the spring out, holding the spring with my right hand and holding the shock in my left hand.

Then my phone rang, startled the crap out of me, and I dropped the shock. The bushings spilled all over the place.

Do you know if there is a schematic for the setup of the bushings? Here's my shock: (I didn't find anything on the Internet)

Bill this philosophically might make sense to you, but not me. There's a good number of pieces.

I should've kept my dot matrix printer

There may or may not be washers on either side of the axle mount as well. Some years have cups welded to the mounts and don't use the washers. IMO the welded cups should be removed and the washers used.

As to the outer washers being ( ) or )( the second is better for our application where we want a lot of shock free movement.

The washers with the steps on the inside diameter go on the mount side of the bushing with the step towards the mount. The washers that are flat on the inside diameter go on the outside of the bushings. I suggest like ) (
