Front Shackle Orientation

Hope everyone is having a good summer. Just wanted to double check the orientation of my front shackles. I have the open part of the shackle facing forward.
I've seen it both ways in pictures. Thanks

Usually the other way around, but will work the way you have it.

No shame here. Easy enough to fix and might as well do it the right way.
Thanks!
