Default MMR diff mounts

So I recently bought the MMR diff mounts for the rear end but I'm rather perplexed to the installation. On stock mounts they have a lip that gets sandwiched between the diff arm and the body. So do I do the same on the mmr mounts? Drop the bushings in from the top so they sandwich between the body and the diff? or install them from the bottom so they hold the diff in place?

It doesn't say what side to mount them on.

How's the difference with them.

Thinking about getting some while the car is down.

They are worthwhile IMO. They transmit a bit more NVH but nothing unlivable (like MMR engine mounts).

Ok. Was that so hard? Because that's what I did. Hammered them in from the top... the only thing is the diff slid off the mounts and was hanging like a monkey holding onto a branch with one hand.

Wow dude, no wonder you didn't know how everything went together if it wasn't right in the first place! Sorry for my impatience then.

Rosenthal Miata?
Finish Line / Rosenthal Mazda Parts & Accessories :: Miata / MX-5
Also check the part out threads in the for sale section. IIRC Levnubhin was doing some whole car partouts.
