Coil Spacers

Installed Skyjacker 2" coil spacers on the front of my jeep, and also new shocks. I am not sure if I did it right, the photos in the directions where too dark. Maybe someone here will know.

1. Does the spacer go first then the factory rubber perch? Or does the factory perch remain where it is, and then the spacer, which would mean that the upper part of the spring sits on the new spacer.

2. There is a flat side on the spacer, does that go towards the engine bay or towards the tire?

3. I am not sure if I will do the rears, because now the jeep is sitting level, what would you all do?

The spacer goes first, then the rubber isolator, then the spring. These companies have to come up with better direstions, ya?

It doesn't really matter which way they go. Those isolators are nothing more than a small spacer anyhow. They aren't required by any means either. But in most cases they will only fit on the bottom side as mentioned above.

If, because of the flat side of the spacer, you aren't having problems, leave them the way they are.
The ones I got had no flat side, so it really shouldn't matter..

according to the directions that came with my 2.25 bb the rubber piece goes first and then the spacer and then the coil. The flat part of the spacer goes up toward the engine compartment.

I did the 2" skyjacker bb with shocks and the directions were horrible. I used directions I got online from another kit and it said to leave the factory spacer in place, put the new spacer on top of it so the spring is resting on the new spacer. It works fine and I don't see where any problems could come up.
