    I only have the passenger arm right now (dual hole) the draglinks goes on the furthest forward hole correct? I think the back hole will be where I attach the tie rod when I get my other arm.

    Yeah Brian, thats the way its got to go, cause the driver side arm is shorter than the passenger side arm.

    Mount the fixed end on a short "tower" next to the spring perch, extend the cylinder toward the pass. side. Make sure the cylinder is parallel to the tierod.
    We've been using a pair of tall tabs running parallel to the axle tube for the cylinder mount, it's pretty simple and effective. We do box it in for a bit more strength.
