Default Bushing install question

I am in the process of completing the full prothane bushing kit and have one quick question. There were four big washers that I believe were in the rear control arm box. It seems like the 2 with larger diameter hole could replace the existing two long bolts in front, but not sure. Anyone know where these are supposed to go? Nothing identified on the directions

Washers go on outsides of the bushings on the lower arm, outer joint(long bolt)

Assuming you mean the rear arm?

Yes . . . Rear, Lower, Outer.

If you don't have the washers for bushing retention, you'll lose a bushing. True story. Sigh.
