indexing moog ball joints

I want to install my new ball joints today. So which way do i face the zerk fitting in the knuckle. Towards the center, rear, or front of the opening. By opening i mean the side that faces the axle. I'm running up to the parts store to borrow the ball joint tool.

Thanks
Steve

Carquest. I belive I paid 174.00 for all 4. A litle pricey but well worth the money from what I've seen here on the board and from local garages. Moog's are the best.

Try to face them to the front, the caliper is in the way on the rear and the axle is in the way on the inside, I'll get a picture for you today!

Too late! I read the instructions that came with them and they said to put them in facing the rear so did and they are already on the C's no i just need to find the socket to torque the threaded insert.
Do you know where to find one of these? Advance didn't have one maybe Napa does.

To all you ball joint experts: Is this the price to expect for the moog joints? I too have heard they are the best, so I'm planning on getting them. But I see that the price is double over the price of other joints. Is there an IH vendor who sells them so I can support the IH businesses?

I used Dana/Spicer joints that I ordered from rockauto. They were made in America and I was very impressed with their quality. They were $41 delivered to my door! Dana/Spicer joints were OEM on Scout II's so I see no reason to not go back with them.
