Rancho shock install ?

Installing some 5000 series shocks on the wrangler. The Haynes manual says I'm supposed to use all these extra washers on the shock bottoms up front and the rears top and bottom. I've always used just the stock hardware and what is provided with the shocks. Thanks for the input!

Extra washers for shocks? Nope.

Ok, thanks. I didn't use them but o reiily and a mechanic recommended the use of them along with the Haynes manual. I couldn't get them around the eye and have the shock fit in the mount so I aborted that mission days ago.

I installed mine with factory hardware. There is absolutely no need for extra washers.

Me thinks you should steer clear of those mechanics. And parts counter advice is often worth what you pay for it. Yes I know every once in awhile you get a decent one but thats rare anymore.
