I'm actually rebuilding mine today. So this could be interesting.

The square hole on top of the panel is on the left hand side as you face the truck, that hole is so you can screw down the cable to the lever. I think the spring goes to the opposite side.

...real helpful, hu?

Spring hooks onto the right hand end of the catch slider but can't remember where it hooked on the slam panel.
