In my AllData manual, it states "Install rubber mount in such a manner that inner V-fold points toward universal joint." This is the diagram ... I have marked in red the "shoulder" that the bearing sits up against, and the direction that is front of the car. It looks like that is opposite of what is described/pictured in step 12 ... if I'm reading that step right, it says the shoulder should face the rear of the car. I'm not saying the DIY is wrong ... more likely, I'm reading something wrong, so I'm looking for clarification. I really don't want to do this wrong and have to take the driveshaft apart again. Ever.
