Default New Parts... Finally suspension..

Got my Sportlines today along with some new shocks and Brakebooster.

Anyone have any tips on installing these bad boys? Also does it matter what ones are in the front and what ones in the rear?

The install doesnt say and nothing on the shocks.

Heres pics.

Yep, it does matter. The rear ones have a smaller bottom mating surface (A lot smaller). You'll notice it right away if you try and put the wrong ones in.

From the pics, looks like the middle ones are rear, sides are front.

You also might want to look into ball joints, sway bar, end links and misc bushings while you have the front torn apart.
