CV joint question

After seeing the condition of one CV I decided to replace all of them and rehab the axle shafts. In doing so I lost track of which way the shafts go on and see no mention of it anywhere. On one side of each shaft there is a raised "rib" (shown circled in the picture attached). Does it go toward the tranny or wheel (or does it matter as long as both are the same?)? Also, is there an "inside" or "outside" on the new CV joints? I see no indication they go a certain way but wanted to ask before I assemble/grease them..

Thanks!

i looked on my car and the rib is to the wheel, ive heard you can swap them though from a porsche mechanic , keeping them the same way just swapping left to right.

Thanks H20, that's where my shop said he believes it goes but he also said he's pretty sure it won't matter as long as they are the same on both axles..

no problem with the swapping thing you have to keep the rotation the same , he says its good for the wear of the joints(even) he also said use a few drops of diff fluid in the joint.

CV's are in, axle's installed! Biggest pain was not messing up the damn gaskets and dealing with Swepco grease all over the place... DONE!
