They also come with an instruction manual, but those are overrated.

I love mine, they really made the front end of the car much more effective than before.
Ahhh, now I see how they attach. Thanks Chris. Seems easy enough.
Question is, will they "lift" the car enough for my problem to be solved. Can you remember how thick the plates are ?
