This is what the parts microfiche shows for OEM shocks on the front. Sort of like you show for the 80 series, but the middle retainer is flipped around and used against the upper bushing. The middle retainer is also a different part than the outer ones. It should have a larger hole to accept the lip on the bushing.

Just did this yesterday and thought the same thing.

Only two washers on the top pin. Look at the washers, there will be one that has a larger hole. I used that one for the bottom mount.

So it goes washer, bushing, bracket, bushing washer. That was the OME shocks I did yesterday. That's how I did it. Hope I'm not wrong here. There was only three washers in the kit so this is what I figured.

I guess a little bit.

Basically I used the bracket as a washer for the bushing, made sure there was metal on each side of the bushing and than cranked down the nut to hold it all in place.
