Someone have a picture of stock upper control arm installed. Replaced my bushings and in the process got them mixed up between drivers and passengers side. I am sure at some point it will be obvious if it is correct or not. Just wanted to know before I started to reinstall. Thanks

Dont have a pic But I believe the upper and lower ball joint will not line up if you put the left upper on the right lower ...etc

The Left and Right will interchange with each other. I installed mine wrong when I put my 79 frame back together after cleaning and paint. If you look at them you can tell its not right or left.
