Help w/ stock front lower control arms

Ok, dumb question but I need help. Have two brand new front lower control arms to replace the worn out ones on my zj. Looking at the ones currently on it, they both appear to be put on the same way, the two holes in the side of the arms facing the passenger side, meaning either they don't have a front and back or one is on backwards. Is there a front and back, if so, how do I tell which one is currently backward. Sorry for the dumb question but any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I asked about this a while back, and the response was that it doesn't matter which way round they go.

Cool, thanks. Was just making sure before I put em on. The bushings in my new arms are a little different from one end to the other (one end has an open space in the rubber) so I guess I will just put em in so the bushings that match are both in the front or rear (if that makes sense). Won't be putting them in until Monday when I install my Lockrite so if anyone has any other info, feel free to chime in.
Thanks again.
