Expedition Exchange retainer install

Can someone give me some info on installing the EE spring retainers in the rear of a 94 d90? Just want to make sure I get it right.

Thanks

really a straight forward install. The one thing you might want to do it tighten them down but leave them loose and take the truck for a spin and drive over some bumps to let the spring settle into them. Then tighten them town real hard.

When I first put mine in I tightened the hell out of them and noticed some binding after I got the springs to flex and move a little. They are super solid too.

If you need it, I can take a couple of photos of mine.

I'm super-happy with mine.

finally got a chance to put these on today. Got the bottoms on fine, went to do the tops, and the bolts are too short. Guess I'm making another trip to the store! They seem very well designed and built.
