Shock washers

How do you do yours?

Saw this in a major parts magazine...

I guess I always do mine the wrong way!

It's to prevent the sharp edge of the washer to cut into the bushing.

We have to do the same thing with the Battery Bank post connectors.

It does look odd, but that is correct. On the lowers doing it the wrong way has the potential to break the shock.
