    My guess is the Wider springs will go to the rear
    the thicker spring pack will go in the front.

    In the end they will only fit one way though. You should be able to tell by the length of the springs.

    good luck

    They are the same thickness & length. The only difference is the width. I'll be making them fit anyways so I will see how it sits. If I don't like it I will change them. I will post pics when it's done. Looks like a few weeks or a month still. I have to get the bill paying work done 1st.

    Hey, if you want some really cool ideas for off-road bumpers, etc check out this forum: http://offroadfabnet.com

    Most of the people on that site use round tubing for bumpers and cages. Cool stuff though....
