I just crawled under my car (tight fit as it's just on rolling "dollies"). You are correct, the rear safety plate is bolted directly to the flex disc. In addition, I have four (4) washers between the driveshaft flange and flex disc (X3). The front safety plate has one (1) washer between itself and the flex disc (X3). Finally I have three (3) washers between the trans yoke and flex disc (X3). I believe my kit came with 24 washers and I used them all. I recall the instruction indicating (I don't have them in front of me) that each car will vary in washer configuration due to individual car misalignment (manufacturing tolerences/accident damage etc.) and that it was important to have the driveshaft bearing mounting plate attach without any misalignment (for competition use anyway).
I STATED THE WASHER CONFIGURATION WRONG: THERE IS ONE (1) WASHER BETWEEN THE REAR SAFETY PLATE AND FLEX DISC, FOUR (4) WASHERS BETWEEN THE DRIVESHAFT FLANGE AND FLEX DISC. NO WASHER BETWEEN THE FRONT SAFETY PLATE AND FLEX DISC, AND THREE (3) WASHERS BETWEEN THE TRANS YOKE AND FLEX DISC.
