i need to talk to someone about my kingpin

i need to ask someone for a second opinion/talk to someone that has worked on both sides of a ford kingpin dana 60 axle. one side is without a steering arm and steering block. the other side im having a problem with is the side with my steering arm.

since there was not a spring, nor a kingpin cap to go over a spring for the kingpin im wondering if what i should do is go ahead and install the new kingpin and bushing then lay the block down over the bushing and put the other circle piece of the block to fill the block to keep pressure on the bushing and kingpin? its kind of a bish to explain, but im sure the other side has the spring because it doesnt have a steering block and stuff.

this is the steering block setup i have with long studs comin out the top of it.
everyone keeps saying put the spring under the block and dont use the inner piece of the block and just slap it over the kingpin cap but im thinkin thats not what you do. if anyone knows someone to ask or anything that would be nice.
