Congratulations—your new Work-Rite load assists are quality products capable of improving the handling and
comfort of your vehicle while under load. As with all products, proper installation is the key to obtaining all of the
benefits your kit is capable of delivering. Please take a few minutes to read through the instructions to identify the
components and learn where and how they are used. It is a good idea to start by comparing the parts in your kit
with the parts list below.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR RETURN THE KIT TO THE DEALER.
Be sure to take all applicable safety precautions during the installation of the kit. The instructions listed in this bro-
chure and the illustrations all show the left, or driver’s side of the vehicle. To install the right side assembly simple
follow the same procedures.
STEP 1— PREPARE THE VEHICLE
With the vehicle on a solid, level surface chock the front wheels. Remove the negative battery cable. Remove the
jounce bumpers located under the frame rail, by removing the bolt located inside the bumper. The jounce bumpers
and bolts will not be re-used with this kit.
STEP 2— PRE-ASSEMBLE THE KIT

through the bottom of the Work-Rite and into the small hole in the top. Place the support disk over the bolt. Insert
the bolt into the existing hole from the jounce bumper removal and secure with a M10 nut and flat washer.

washer through the bottom of the Work-Rite and into the small hole in the top. Place the support disk over the bolt.
Fasten the Work-Rite and disk to the frame.
See Figure “B”.
NOTE: An optional spacer may be installed to engage the Work-Rite sooner when a load is applied. To
install, place between the Work-Rite and the support disk. If the spacers are installed, use the M10 x
65MM bolt instaed of the M10 x 40MM bolt. There should be 1/4" to 3/8" between the Work-Rite and the
axle. See Figure “C”.
