I wanna help but I can't describe it. I need to see the area to describe it better.

We took one spring plate off at a time (driver side) and loosened the other (passenger side). Let the pack separate a little so we could fit the AAL in. Centered everything and made it snug so we could do the passenger side. Once both sides had AAL's installed we tightened everything down.
I had to get a couple washers for the centering pins since I couldn't tighten it down as my socket wouldn't reach over the pins.
I put the washers on top of the top leaf and snugged it down.

There's really only one way to install them. Morris summed it up
