The washers go on the shank of the front ball joint; the one that goes between the upper suspension arm and the hydro unit. This works for dry cars and should for hydro units as well.

Cheers, Ian

There are 2 size balljoints one has a slightly longer lenght to it which will raise the front if still to low add the washers.
