    silver spring on the bottom, black spring on top, and key in the middle. put the silver spring on the caliper bracket first (tabs down over the edges) then put the black spring on top of the key and tap them in with a small hammer.

    i dont see how he is going to fit both springs in there. there is 2 diffrent styles there. use the black one on top of the bar/wedge. then before all of that clip that shinny little one on the bottom of the inner pad so the little tab sticks in to the rotor so it squeals when the pads get low.

    that looks like a universal kit. possible other bendix brake aplications used the silver one.

    slide caliper on rotor and lift up to top grove. then slide the block/wedge and black spring in on bottom. then tap in till full goverage. and align bolt hole and install lock bolt.

    Hey Z- Mine uses the silver spring (ears facing down) on top of the "supportKey". SweetK30 descirbes the little shiney spring install very well. Mine is a bit loose as installed but makes no detectable noise. Then again I can't hear much over the sound of those TSL's!
