Offset rack bushings, hole up or down.

I know the offset bushings aren't ideal but...I installed them about 10 years ago with the hole on the bottom...I looked at them today and started thinking shouldn't the hole be on the top? Yes I have a lot of bumpsteer.

da' hole s'posed ta be in da' down position. If they were the other way, the rod ends would look even more like this: " \_/ " {With the steering rack in the middle).

I got a set free, installed them, and ran on them and felt the car had a little better turn in feel, and would grip a little better throught the turn(sweepers). May just be the "I modded something so now I KNOW it's faster!" factor though.

You want the bushings to raise your rack; whichever orientation will do that is what you want.
