    One spring installed with the bottom end about half way between the two holes in the lower control arm.

    Is the upper joint stud fitted correctly in the spindle? The nut is torqued to 50 ft lbs. I thought the dust boot would be parallel with the spindle

    It will be more squared when you put the wheels on and set it on the ground. Remember to leave the a-arm bolts a bit loose, tighten them loaded.

    Thanks gents. Slowly but surely I am getting there with it being done correctly this time. Now to install the other spring.
