help please, changing rear shocks

Ok took my 2014 JGC LTD in today to the shop to put my new wheels/tires on. I also had them install a set of SRT spring and non load leveling shocks in the rear.

I got a call from the tech saying that the load leveling shocks needed more parts to install at the top. I got the shocks from just for jeeps and have called them Corey was helpful but stated he didn't know what else was needed to finish the installation but said that this may be the part.

Anyone else have experience with this. Will these be all that is needed?

Re: help please, changing rear shocks

I've ordered the parts suggested by wk2gp (thanks again) for anyone else looking to do this it appears that the shock mount has an updated part number but my parts guy helped me with that...

I'll post pictures shortly but even with the load leveling shocks the ride and cornering performance have been remarkable improvements.
