Front Suspension

So I just received all my new suspension parts today after scrapping the old stuff about 6 months ago. It appears I should have saved some hardware.
I think there is supposed to be a large cupped washer between the castle nut and the ball joint on both the upper and lower control arms, which I do not have.
Any one have any extras?

Also, my new control arms came with some hard plastic ball joint covers, are those supposed to installed, or just for shipping?

Thanks for helping with my newbie questions!

There are no washers under the castle nuts for the ball joints. At least I don't recall seeing any.

The plastic bits are just for shipping. All you need is the rubber boot.

No washers is correct. Just jam it in the whole and torque to specs.
