tj control arm ? need answer now

lifting jd's tj, the control arms have an angle in them, and the bend is a little to one side.

which way do they go in, i just wanna be sure, where the bend goes, and to which side, axle or away.

thanks.

oh for sure. that was awesome today, thanks again.

josh will be postin up soon on the work today.

4" lift, front u joints, and rock sliders.

no instructions of any sort on the lift. i don't really need them, accept for which way the arms went, they can go on anyway, and i'm not a tj guy. i searched around on the web, posted the question, and pointy got us on track before i could find it else where.

Thank you dave again for having the tools of power and the time you spent helping me. Doing that by hand would of sucked. I am in the process of getting the pics up. BTW my mom tried getting in and almost fell on her ass lol. BTW I will be ordering 33's and the tires probably monday/ IE driving to southbend to pick them up.

What a world of difference the ride is, so much smoother. Guy in a truck felt the rath of the hela's too hehe.
