Installing b&b headers

Hey guys I have a quick question on installing headers on a 3.6. The exhaust seals I have are flat on one side and have a slight dome on the other. Does it matter which surface contacts the head and which contacts the header? And is there a trick for keeping the seals in the head so they don't fall out while I install the headers?
Thanks in advance, Jake

I put the dome on the exhaust pipe side, but I can't promise that's factory correct.

There's a couple tricks you can do to hold the gaskets in place. Old school is to stick them with grease, or tie them on with thin thread, on the outer edge of the mounting ears. Another way is to use crazy glue, but I've never done that.
