    I got a pair of Hemi rated torsion bars that have the correct 980/981 markings on them. I know that I'll put them in the same orientation of the numbers, but one end is painted white and the other end is painted black on both bars. Any specific way they go in? Does the white end go in the LCA hex?

    Odd # is left side. Even # is right side. This is true of all Chrysler parts that came in pairs.

      Right. That part I understand. The stamps are on both ends and one end is painted white and the other is black. Wondering if it matters which way to orient the bar end to end.

      They can go in either way, front to back. Only left and right matter, as you know.
