Thumbs down Control Arm Question

I have a full set of fixed lower control arms from Rough Country, and I am unsure which end connects to the frame and which to the axle? All 4 are the exact same with a bend in it. Please comment, thanks.

On the lowers, RC makes them the same in the fixed category.... The bend facing down toward the pavement for the install... the bushings on both sides are the same.... the bend is in the middle.

RC's directions don't even discuss this, cuz its a non-issue

With the bend facing DOWN and the point facing UP, which side connects to the frame? small or short side?

Just to clarify. The point is DOWN. not up. The longer side of the flat to the frame like this.
