Top should be leaning out. One easy way to tell if you have a right and a left spindle, one is right hand thread, the other is left. The nut from one side will not thread onto the other.

Mike, one way to identify if the spindles are correct is the outer bearing should loosen on both of them when you drive forward. If they tighten it is a very dangerous situation.

Make sure you get the correct thread spindle on the correct side. Don't ask me why I say this but it cost me a 26-27 wire wheel hub to find out.

Left hand thread is on the right; right hand thread is on the left. If the bearing is turned in the same direction as the wheel with the car going forward, it should loosen, not tighten.
