I bought a set of LMUTV rods while I was on the road, and installed them in the dark, at an RV park. LOLI have a set of the LM rods on my rig. I noticed you had some, so I wanted to check how you had them set up for exactly the reason you stated - no instructions! Ha!
Front shock tower brace, and limit straps were the first mod I did. A year and a half later, and no problems. They hold the ahocks back exactly 1" from full extention on both front and rear.
