Default Front LCA OEM bushing orientation? 80 series

Removed my caster correction bushings and going back to OEM bushings as I installed caster plates.

So my question is how to orientate the OEM bushings? There are two holes 180 degrees apart in the rubber part. Where should I place those in relationship to the ground?

A picture from Christo's site show's the holes in a horizontal orientation:

Search Mud. The diagram is posted somewhere. Early trucks was one way, then they changed it. Can't recall which is the correct way now, but it is on MUD.

Got a text from Onur. Horizontal is the word.

Good to know. I really want to switch away from OME bushings back to stock, but am tempted to go with the drop brackets rather than caster plates. (given my lower lift).
