Rear Hub Carrier are different, for Left and Right
Look for dot below ball stud
Align both dots both to front

It does, but they could be more clear about it
" Pay attention to direction of part"

Also noticed, I had it reversed, dots face forward for kit setting

Indeed not very clear, on my car by great coincidence both dots face towards the front.

Glad i read this before I had to change one!

Kit setting is towards front, but I see it as a fine tuning option
So long as both face same direction

I can't tell a difference, if it's wrong I've been running it wrong since the bd5 and up. If this was also true yokomo gave me 2 right carriers for my 15.

Me neither. I had one side forward and the other backwards on my 2014 car. No wonder it turned better to one side than the other. And had them backwards both sides on the 2015.

Was anyone able to measure difference between toe if dots are facing front or rear?

So according to the photos, having the dot facing the rear is better because it gives exact toe in?

Interesting - thanks for sharing!!!

I didn't notice it either at assembly time! What puzzles me is how it can be asymetric... with the stock hub set from the kit. It'd mean Yokomo gives you a 2L or 2R combo, or that the chassis is asymetric by design and the hubs carry asymetric outboard toe to correct this... I will check my car tonight!

Very weird no matter what

cheers
Paul
