The smaller piece will be bolted to the fender.
You will need 2x for both pieces if you are doing both sides.

 Step 3: Install very easy to install, just bolt the large bracket to the hood and hinge holes, use the bolts already there. The small bracket, you bolt down to the front fender, there is a bolt already there for the fender. You can use the same bolt. Now clip in the gas shock and check for clearance.
