72 Nova Front Stabilizer Bar Bushings

Hi

I recently finished a bunch of front end work on my 72 nova. One of the things I did is replace both sets of bushing on the end links of the front stabilizer bar. there is a long bolt that holds each set of "sandwiched" bushings and washers together along with the stabilizer bar. does it matter which way the long bolt is oriented? I put it in upside down because it had better clearance. I noticed afterwards in assembly diagrams that I had it backwards. does it matter?

Only if the bolt end scrapes the ground or catches on something.
I cant think of another reason, except maybe ease of installation.
I put them in upside down my first time too. It looks like the bolt end's about to hit the upper joint boot when the nut's on top, but it wont.
