Rear Suspension Rebuild Questions

I'm gathering the parts necessary to rebuild the rear suspension on my '86 300E. It currently has all the original struts and mounting hardware. Due to changes over the years it appears that I need some hardware kits to update the nuts, bolts, sleeves and washers used to attach the various links.

Can anyone tell my exactly how many of which hardware kits (with part numbers, if possible) I'll need to replace the links pictured below?

I've so far acquired the 1st, 3rd and 4th links pictured, as well as 2 of the 210 350 45 06 hardware kits that contain 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 1 sleeve, 1 narrow flat washer and 1 large tri-lobed washer.

When I replace the hardware will it be self-evident where the different washers go?

Is this same hardware kit used on all the link attachments?

Thanks again for any help and enlightenment.
