Mustang II Diagram needed

My instructions were sketchy on how to install the ball joints to the Mustang II spindles on the suspension kit I bought. There are spacers that I don't know where to put. It looks like they go between the castle nuts and the spindle itself, but they have a big whole and are hard to center under the castle nut. If you put them on the ball joint tapered shaft before the spindle goes on then the spindle will not tighten up properly on the taper. I would like a drawing showing the proper placement of the spindle, ball joint tapered shaft, spacers, etc. Thanks for your help.

spindle washer location

The photo of the spindle you show with the ball joint is correct. The washers go on top. The reason that the washer hole is too big, is so they do not contact the ball joint when tightened, but allow the ball to pull up through the spindle so it seats properly on the taper. Hope this helps. tom

thanks

I finally figured this out by looking at a drawing from Heidts IFS. The instructions that came with the Helix universal IFS were terrible. There were not nearly enough details, especially for those of us who have never done an IFS conversion before. It took lots of work just to figure out what was what. I will not use Helix again. Thanks for your input.
