teraflex lower monster control arms install question

Purchased a used set of Teraflex monster control arms (lower rear) and not sure which end gets mounted to the axle? Flex end or the bushing end? Also does the grease fitting point up or down?

Also any feedback regarding your experience with maintaining them?

I had the same ones installed as rear lowers at Elia's 4WD to adjust my rear pinion angle. Rubber bushing end is on the axle, and the grease fitting points up. No problems after 1 year - don't even notice they're there. Grease them regularly.

the reason most companies offset the axle end, is because the shock mount on the axle overhangs so much that if it were just welded on there straight, it would bind up sooner and do more damage than good. plus there is more welding surface area when they are welded at an angle = stronger.
