Default i need install help!!!!!

So I've been trying for 2 days now to install this kit. The directions are not much help and there not a single pic that I can find with this CURRENT design installed. My problem is the drivers side lower locator plate. I can't figure out how to bolt it on. The hole the bolt goes into is inaccessible from the bottom to put a wrench on it. I can barely fit my finger down there. I'm pretty handy with a wrench and I don't see how to bolt this up. If you have installed this latest design kit can you please post some pics of the drivers side along with explaining how you did it........ Thanks for any help

Well I finally got the kit installed. I ended up taking a grinder to a 9/16 open end wrench and taking the thickness down to 3/16 and then removing material from the sides till I was able to get the wrench to fit into the small opening. I did use my own air line and fittings (Parker brand) and not the ones included with the kit. It's been aired up to 20lbs for about an hour now and no leaks. I drove around with 10lbs in the bags with no load on the truck and it drove fantastic. I think it handles bumps and potholes better than it did when stock. The biggest problem I had with the install was a lack of any photos. Here and on the web site all show the old style set up and not the new one that I received. I'm including a pass anger and driver side installed photo here for anyone in the future that my need it. The bags do slightly rub against the coils on both sides.


And John if you look at the pics and I installed anything wrong please let me know...

Drivers side




Passenger side

Looks OK Mike.
