Need help ASAP.

Hi guys I'm new to this website and new to owning a focus.
I bought a set of adjustable gaz coil overs to suit a focus ls 2006. I bought them off a website private, and there brand new as the guy traded the car in and never end up fitting them.
I want to fit them but got no ideas how to put them together as there in pieces
And I got to put it together. Has anyone got instructions or can help. Thanks

There the coilovers above. I can't work out the order of the spacers that go on the front strut. And not sure how to fit the rear adjustable part. This is all new to me. Also the front spring is thinner on one side, so not sure which is top and bottom on the springs. Wish I had instructions.

Moving this to "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension" to better help you.

Also to let you know that you don't need to make a new post if you want to post a picture. You can put multiple pictures into one post.

BAT.inc sells the Gaz coilovers brand new, might be able to help you out with a set of instructions if you call them up.

I did a quick google search and the "instructions" on GAZ's website are totally useless.

I would make sure these are for a '6+ foci 1st. In '06 ford changed out the diameter of the struts. The most popular kits are for the '00-'05 cars. If this is for a earlier car you can still use it, you'd need to get a ''Omni kit'' from Massive performance. Its a sleeve that takes up the clearence between the strut Of the earlier strut & the later bigger diameter spindle.
