gjm120, I believe the excerpt you posted is for the guide rod, which gets mounted curve side down, but points angled forward sort of. The arm in my pictures that is making contact to the chassis is the wishbone, I believe that should be mounted with the curve side up, which is how I have it.

@dtla, My car is not that low imo, but the best way to tell the ride height is to look at the pictures in my "garage". My guess is I have a half to one finger gap in the rear.

@1and1, I do think the bump stop may be to short and I need to add one or two packers to limit travel.
Went back and double checked, you have it correct. At least up vs down.

I remember it being pretty damned hard to install them backwards as they are handed.
