Drop links

Forgive me for this potentially stupid question

Drop links, I know theyíre different from left to right as part numbers are different but are they different from top to bottom do to the way they face?

Replaced mines less than a week ago and one is knocking already. Just wondering if itís potentially on upside down. Removing tomorrow morning to check itís tight also

coukd be the control arm,,i bought all new control arms/drop links and radius arms,,,this was after having it up on a 4 poster to check the knocking,,,we thought it was a worn control arm,,anyway 2 days later we got the car back up to put the arms on etc,,and the guy noticed the play in the control arm was actually a loose nut on the arm where it bolts to the suspension,,couldnt tell by eye and it wasnt able to turn by hand etc,,but just needed tightened up,,anyway my other side has started knocking now,,the same little knock when going over rough ground,,,i still have the arms and drop links etc,,and as my car is due mot end this month im just waiting till then,,so check all arms etc also..

Drop links can be fitted in either orientation. Careful to tighten the nuts cause it's easy to strip the thread on them if over-torqued!
