Light Racing UCA Install

So I just got my LR UCA and am a little confused about how to install the ball joint that came with the new UCA. The plate that can be positioned for caster change, along with how to place it in the UCA, round side out or flat side with SPC on it out. I have the OME 881 on the Nitro-charger strut with the 10 mm top plate spacer. Rendering a rough 2.5 inches of lift.

My thought is to have that plate positioned at 0 degrees and having the flat edge with the SPC aimed out.

Can anyone confirm my thoughts or correct my thinking.


Thanks in advance for the help!


Pictures below depict my thoughts

I have LR UCSs on my truck. For the adjustment plate set at the zero setting, the longest part of the plate will run parallel to the axle. For the ball joints, the rounded part will be facing the tire.
