302S control arm bushings

Myself and a few others are doing the 302S front control arm upgrade (Of course I had to do it the hard way by removing stock bushings, never again, and welding in the sleeves for the Howe ball joints) and I have a question on how the bushings on the rear should stack up. There is the main bushing which goes in the mount and has a rounded end, and a spacer bushing that has a concave end on one side and flat on the other. Seems that the concave and rounded end should mate but there is also a taper on the shaft where it's welded to the control arm. The flat side against that pushes the bushing out about an 1/8" more than if the concave end goes against it. If anyone knows the correct orientation let me know.
