You are correct.I know you know how to say it.
Looks like from that picture you posted that the dealer put my middle, and lower rods on different, and I installed them back the same way dealer installed them. I don't know what effect having them backwards does if clearances are not an issue.
Edit: took the rods off and checked the fit of them being reversed, and I actually had less clearance along with not enough of the correct bushing inserts to install them that way. I am leaving them the way the dealer installed them since they seem to be working fine.
