SPC front camber kit

I just installed some coilovers and while I was at it the front SPC camber bolt. I am pretty sure I put them back in the same orientation as I took them out, which is from the front push in towards the back with the nut on the back closest to the brake caliper. But in my PDF shop manual, it shows it going the other way, from the back towards the front. I had work done at a shop and it is possible they put them in backwards. Will this have any effect on my suspension or alignment if I have the camber bolt backwards?

I have checked online and seriously, every video or website I find regarding this shows it both ways so I am sure it isn't a big deal, but just wanted to double check. This is from the manual, mine are going in the direction:

Just spoke with a buddy of mine who recently started working at Honda and used to be a tech at Nissan. He says the diagram is correct, but that on the passenger side the bolts from the factory will be mounted backwards, so front to back. Says it doesn't affect anything. Honda and Nissan do the same thing. Any thoughts??

I actually put the nut always on the right side of where I'm facing. So driver side, I'd have the nut closer to the rear, then on the passenger side, the nut closer to the front. I only do this so when I have to loosen the nut (when working on suspension), the orientation allows me to pull the ratchet to loosen the nut so it's easier but that's because I have no power tools rofl

4 years doing that and no problems yet :P
