Looking for some help with the location of all the springs. I made the mistake of pulling them all off without taking pictures or leaving one side together since I have the shop manual. Unfortunately the shop manual doesn’t specify which ones go where. I bought a Dorman brand kit and there are two different size springs that go at the bottom by the adjuster. One is a slightly smaller diameter then the other. Is one for the passenger and one for the driver side? I attached a picture. One is brown and the other is white. If anyone has any pictures that would be helpful. Thanks.

This is everything I got in the kit. I just can’t figure out which springs go into those copper colored pieces. It’s either the blue ones or the green ones. Also I’m not sure if there is a driver/passenger spring between the two at the bottom of the picture since one is smaller then the other. The ones that came off were identical. Any idea if it makes a difference?

Don't think it makes a difference. No "left" or "rights." One was made in southern China while the other in norther China. You could also use your old ones if they are still in good shape.

Hahaha. Ok. Do you know which hold down spring goes into the adjuster? There are different springs.
