Help asap w control arm install

No where did I get directions and I referenced to a few other companies but didn't get what I needed. I have Clayton off road short control arms. I am guessing the johnny joint end goes up in frame and the bushing to axle? And for the lowers front and rear they are off centered. What way does it go. Help

bushing on the axle on the lowers.

on the lowers the higher side goes up on the axle so you clear the shock mount

Now wait. For rear the shock is not in rears way. The front yea but when you say higher you mean the offcenter being above the bolt or below.

Please tell me the picture is right haha. I kept the offcenter part up figuring keeps arm higher so when arm goes down it is starting at a shorter point. If that makes sense. Anyway so fronts. What way!

I would think the way the 2nd picture is the way it goes in because as the axle drops/moves it will not hit the arm.

Yea after I kept thinking I flips the back lowers. It would deft hit in front lowers if you didn't do it that way on the shock mount.

Anyway just finished my install lovely 4AM!! I'm shot. Also finally got to installing my tire carrier the PO gave me w jeep. Hardware was all rusted shot junk but everything else fine. I got fresh bolts and nuts. Made up some of my own rubber bushings where it mounts to body with $1.09 worth of vinyl floor trim at lowes. Then made a big backer plate for mounts by body corner because I think it ripped out from PO idiot had no washers nothing all that weight. And fought one rusted huge bolt w a 1 1/8 head on it. Back and forth w impact gun for a few minutes loosed her up along w PB Blaster. Can't wait to find a damn spare tire to mount. Need or want a 33x12.5x15 at least but any decent tire. I had a black steel d window rim here 15x10 likerest of my wheels to use for spare. Love it!


Added few pics.
