    There is typically only one (1) insulator per spring used. This is to lessen the amount of vibration and road noise transferred via the spring from the axle into the truck body.
    Place an insulator over the spring seat/ place the spring on it's seat/ done.

    Do not go cheap...get a well-made kit. The cheap ones use weak components. I did the conversion and it was great. What I should do is replace the torsion bar with a stronger one since there is a bit of a bouncy feeling the in the front.
