they are for the shocks, you put them on top of the springs to stiffen up the shocks

they go on your snap on to your shocks above the spring to give the spring more(make em stiffer) preload.

it depend on the driving your doing. try a little stiffer if your doing some jumping to the chassis and arms dont bottom out and take a beating. a little softer if your just flat driving so the suspenstion takes the shock of the road and small bumps. too stiff and it will probably handle and bounce around. It a little trial and error.
