Help putting front end back together.....71 F250 Camper Special

Folks,

so I got all my front patrs back from the powder coater and starting to reassemble!! WOOOHOO!!
Prob is I can't figure out how the coil springs sit on the Ibeams. I have looked at the online diagrams but they aren't very clear.

Anyone have a good picture of the front end assembled? Here are a couple shots of what I currently have.

In the first picture is the cup/seat for the spring. Where does it go? Inside or outside of the spring?

Thank you TurboHunter!! It was actually a screwup with my powder coater, he gave me such a great deal I just didn't have the heart to ask him to do it over. It was supposed to match the rest of the truck........

I like highlighting the running gear.
Of course now you've opened a can of worms and have to make the whole underside look good.

LOL!! I totally agree!!

And Fab Fords forever is only what seven months away?? Sure am glad the engine and trans are both completely rebuilt already and sitting on the stand.

Just need to reassemble really.

Brady: I took the spindles with a new King PIn set to National Auto here in Lake Elsinore. Only one I could find with a reamer only thing I am reusing without replacement or rebuild is the bolts

Where did you get your king pin set? And if you don't mind how much do they charge for it?
