Coil spacer installation question

I just installed some BDS 2" coils and still have a 3/4" rake in front so I ordered 3/4" coil spacers. I was looking at them and started thinking Doesnt the stock doughnut have ruber tabs that stick into the frame? so will I just put these in first then followed by the stock doughnut and then coil and thats it
The one side of the 3/4" spacer is flat while the other side is concaved so does the flat go against the frame and the concave point down?????
Anyone got a picture of this completed for refference?

Good question, my 3/4" spacers (still waiting for my OME's to settle in...) look nothing like the 2" ones I used to have. I'm not sure how they are supposed to be installed.

you put the spacer between the spring isolator (stock doughnut) and the spring..

you stack them in this order from the top

jeep body/frame
spring isolator (stock doughnut as you call it)
3/4" spacer (with concave facing spring..)
spring

^ is for the rear only, follow 311's instructions for the front (I think? I haven't installed my spacers in yet because my springs haven't sagged yet) because 3/4" spacers look like this:

I think if the spacer is like the one Gatorayde posted than 311WJ was right. sorry to confuse things I didn't know that 3/4'' ones were different.

well if the spacer looks like the ones wjo4 posted, than he is right. that's how my bb was exactly.. I'm not sure bout the thin ones.. so how bout you post a pic of the spacer.. or tell us what brand it is so we can look. ever kit is different. some kits actually have you put the smaller spacers on the bottom of the spring..

and thanks. i love my jeep.. have you looked at the Rig of the month? there are lot of sweet jeeps in there that need your vote.. the link is in my sig...
