I don't think it makes any difference. Hopefully someone else will chime in that knows for sure.

One end will have splines and goes into the dif, the other has threads and goes into the spindle. I'm thinking this is what you are asking. The FFR shafts are the same on each end and they go in the middle.

my FFR shafts were not symmetrical. someone at the time knew which way they went and i did it that way. the CV joint clamps end up positioned better if they are the correct way.

The longer end goes to the tripod plunge joint. The extra length allows the boot the remain correctly in place when the joint moves in & out.

Phantom is right.
I just did mine 2 days ago and I made a point of checking when I took apart the original.
The manual say's there's no difference but the is.
Cheers
