IRO install, unkown washers. PLEASE HELP

Hey guys, so I got my IRO adj. trac bar and adj. front upper and lower CA's. I had to take my WJ to a fab shop since they wont let me work on it on base. In my box it came with a bag of fairly thick washers. Im not sure what they are for. Im thinking the Trac bar. Please let me know. I dont have any pictures. my bad. I just wanted to let the shop know for certain what they are for.
Thanks

They are most likely for your lower control arms at the axle.

They are for the lower control arms. Two washers going on the axle side, (one on each side of arm). One washer goes on the outside of the frame mount so the control arm is spaced towards the middle. These are necessary to properly tighten the control arms with out bending the mounts. There should be a total of 6 washers. 3 for each arm. Make SURE they get put on PROPERLY or else your mounts will be bent and that isn't a fun time.

Axle side should be = axle mount-washer-control arm-washer-axle mount
Frame side = frame mount-control arm-washer-frame mount

Also most people put the jam nut facing the frame side as well.

I'm in the middle of installing mine too and I got the washers on the axle side no prob. BUT, on the frame side my control arm fits perfect on the driver's side without a gap but it does has a slight gap for a washer on the passenger side. Should I bend out the frame mount on the driver's side to allow room for the washer?

Thanks...

I would use the washer on the Frame. Mine fit perfectly on each side with a washer. Why yours don't I couldn't tell you.
