This way or that way?

2005 SWB Rubicon
I installed a 4" Tera flex lift with the upper and lower modular short arms. In the instructions it says to install the flex joint on the axle.
The place I bought the lift from said to reverse them so that the flex joint is as far from the ground as possible to protect the joint. Sounded good, so I went with that and now am wondering which is right.
Here is my cardomain site for pics.

flex joint goes at the axle. you will get a transfer of noise and vibration running them the way you installed them. did the lift not come with install instructions? if so, why did you not reference them? p.s dont listen to what the parts guy has to say about installs, they are usually incorrect.
