Default front wishbones

I have the front suspension disassembled for rebuilding. I sent the lower wishbones out for powder coating along with some other parts. I have them back and started looking at reassembly. off hand I don't know which side is which. Can someone tell me which way the ball joint mount is located? Does it bend forward or back? There are part numbers cast in them but none of my catalogs show a part number for a lower wishbone. There might be an arrow cast in them also but the powder coat thickness obscures it.

The wishbones angle back and balljoint mounting point needs to point forward for an end result of balljoint mounting points more or less pointing straight out to the side. Hope that makes sense?
