Hey Noah, just put my engine back in my car this weekend and my balls fell out ( of my CV joint) so while it's fresh in my mind,, there are two ways to align the outer ring with the inner cluster,, both have V grooves that the balls ride in.. Conrary to what you might think you need to align them opposite of one another.. In other words make sure the outer V is crossing the inner V so it forms XX as you look at it from above ( you'd need Xray vision to actually do so)..
You'll know if you get it wrong as the joint will lock up..
