Default A-arm fulcrum pin orientation

I read somewhere that the fulcrum pin on the lower a-arm is asymmetrical and has a specific orientation, but cannot find the post now

Anyone know?

Factory manual shows like this...

Oddly, when I re-bushed my A-arms it was the 'other' way which actually increases castor I think... I changed it 'back' but wonder if it was possibly better the 'other' way 'round

The shorter distance from the bushing washer-to-mount notch goes to the front for a number of geometry reasons. Just sayin'
