You should be able to see how it is assembled by this picture. #13 is the links your are replacing. You need to have some way to hold up the rear of the bike other then the swingarm while you take the links out. Basically loosen those bolts and replace the links. The upper bolt should be the single eye hole in the links you bought. The lower bolt is the adjustable one. Start with the middle hole for a 2 inch drop from stock. Check the service manual for torque specs if your picky.

Or some tie downs attached to the subframe and a ceiling joist.
