Once you receive the kit it should be a bit easier to understand.
On the bottom of accumulator housing case you will see 1-2 on one bore & 2-3 stamped on the other bore.
This you need to pay attention to this closely, each bore is a bit different.
The kit comes with new springs & spacers. You will use these.. as in instructions that I posted back on page 2 you might want to print photo 9 & 10 out.
The 2-3 bore receives the 3/4 inch spacer on the bottom, a plain, red,& white spring as well & one half inch (.530) spacer on the top. See layout photo on bench #9
The 1-2 bore also receives a 3/4 inch spacer on the bottom, and a plain and white spring only. (no spacer on top)
Buttoning the pan back up I used a inch lb wrench set at 120 inch lbs.
A torque wrench is the correct method.
I suppose without a torque wrench you could get all the bolts in place tighten then loosely, and then go ahead to where they are snug and 1/4 inch more to tighten.
Not the best method but many use this as a way to snug em up without over tightening.
You may be able to rent a inch lb wrench for this job.
Or if you feel uncomfortable about doing this work, alternatively, you could find a pro shop to complete the shift kit install for you.
Hope this helps.
