I see you have them together, so got that figured out. But some details you might not have known, or found out on the run so to speak.

The shock boots usually have a slot at the top, basically the double-lip of the top opening, that will fit around that white collar at the top of the shaft, just below the bushings.

The top stem bushings come in two flavors usually. One has a thin lip, while the other has a wide lip. Which one you use depends on the side of the hole in the mounting bracket. If it's a big hole, you get the wide lip. Small hole, thin lip.
There are certainly variations in overall thickness, and even in how deep the lips extend, but the two basic sizes are relatively consistent.

In the old days of only rubber bushings they were laid out so that as you tightened the nut and the bushings started to squeeze out, you stopped when the rubber had just squished barely past the diameter of the washers.
With polyurethane however, and multiple and inconsistent manufacturers, that rule kind of went out the window with everything else.
Now there may still be a specification by some, but it's best to follow the bushing manufacturer's recommendations. Or the shock manufacturer, if the bushings were supplied.

Hey Paul, I was wondering about the shock sleeve and if they went under or over the thin plate. Never had them so I went back and forth and said I have more to do so I will come back to that issue when I do the brakes and have the tires off.
Thank You

Got the Bronco running again and man it sounds pretty good with the open headers. Old fuel line needs to be replaced from pump to carb. and a few things need tightening but all i all pretty cool. Having some trouble with the cable return of the gas pedal. The funky bracket or cable may not be set right.

Pretty hard to find a throttle cable for my 6 cylinder. No one seems to have one. Looks like the white plastic noodle that the cable runs in has separated. Trying some JB Weld.

I don't think they reproduce those cables, post an ad in Parts Wanted, somebody's got one laying around

I started the day pulling the front driver drum/hub. Needed a new brake cylinder. Pretty nasty in their from years of sitting. Once back together I will start bleeding the brakes in an effort to be able to move under its own power. Fixed the throttle linkage and the motor started right up. So moving along.
