which way do Ford's strut rod bushings go in?
I'm rebuilding the front suspension, and have removed the new strut rod bushings (from Ford) that I had installed a few months ago. At the time I questioned if they were put in right and the consensus was according to the 1st pic below, the bushing between the strut rod and LCA (top one in pic) was in backward.
Now that I have them out, and can test fit with the new LCA, it seems like that is how they really are supposed to fit in.
I've taken pics of the 2 possible configurations. Which one is correct? (The last 2 pics show passenger side LCA, so the strut rod comes in from the right).
