The cups and springs go in the side of the shifter to keep it firm and centered in its place. One spring goes inside the cup (with grease of course) on the right hand side of the chrome shift lever (which has the shift knob atop of it), and one spring fits in the other cup which goes on the left side of the shifter lever. The big washers (which are unique washers to the gear shifter, not regular washers) go under the hex-head shoulder bolts which attach the shifter to the base. Look at the Ford shop manual if you have one, for a good pic of the whole thing. And if you don't have a Ford shop manual yet, get one ASAP.
