BB install kicking my but

I have put on a couple lifts before but for some reason this is just a pain. I had this bb kit laying around for a while. I decided to put it on today. There were four bump stop spacers. Two long and two about 1/2" shorter. I assumed the long ones went in the front. Well I finally got the front done and I only have about 3/4" clearance for my bumpstops. Before I take it all back apart does anyone know if the long spacers should go in front or in back?

long ones are for the rear. short ones go on the front.

just throw the jounce, cup and bumpstop extension inside the spring, install the spring and fish the parts up into place by hand. saves a lot of headache vs trying to get the spring in with all that crap in place.

Thanks. I guess I will start undoing everything in the front again.

Mine were both same length and mine was level. Ran it for 2 years no worries.. The back is easier if you jack it up and let your axle drop by centering your jack

Do I need to disconnect the track bar or just the sway bar links and shocks

if you disconnect the track bar and sway bar, do it at ride height. don't try to do it with the axle dropped...
