Dandy. Unless an alignment specialist works at a dealership where he sees the same models over and over, he will not have the threads memorized, so he has to just turn the sleeve to see if he went the right way or the wrong way. To add to the confusion, on a lot of older cars, once you had the inner, outer, and sleeve bolted together, that entire assembly could be installed either way, and in fact they came that way from the factory. You never knew which way to turn the sleeve, and even looking at the threads could leave you confused. You just had to try it one way to see if you guessed right. To compound the confusion, if you went to an auto parts store to buy a replacement "inner", for example, you had a good chance of coming home with a part with the wrong thread.
Happy to hear your project is handled.
