Exclamation Need help/info regarding coilover assembly

I just bought a coilover kit from FK for my e36 coupe. And im having trouble installing the coilovers. When i got the package the front coilovers had 2 lug nuts on it. Do i screw them out and then add my bushing/top bearing? I screwed out the first lug nut(nr 1 on pic), but do i need to take of the lug nut nr 2? What order do i assemble the coilover and what must i use from my old spring sett?

I added a picture to show you what i mean. I appreciate any help as Im new to this and its kinda urgent

The first lug nut its the locking nylon nut that will secure the coilover to the Front Shock Mount. The 2nd one is just a spacer to protect the coilover.

Just remember, #1 is a one time use item. If you ever have to remove it then you need to replace it with a new one.
