I'm installing White Line Bushings in the Rear Control Arms of my 91 Metro.

The 2 piece White Line bushings have 2 different sized lips. Does the Larger Lip go to the front or rear?

Stocks ones were too destroyed to tell any difference.

The control arm bushing that bolt up to the chassis has the lip to the rear...

As for the bushing at the knuckle, I couldn't tell either, and my new one's are still in the mail...

I PM'ed a couple member here and GeoMetroform. Sounds like the general consensus is the larger lip goes to the rear. There's more force pushing the control arm to the rear than to the front. Now it makes sense. Many Thanks to T3RagTop & Xrw44. :thumbsup:
