It definitely matters which way they go. If you flip them toward "positive", you move the ball joint stud and nut outboard (toward the rotor).
Yeah but look at the picture, the lower control arm is what's touching not the joint, the lower control arm doesn't care which way the joint is orientated, its going to touch no matter what you do with the joint.

EDIT: Never mind, the lower joint orientation will pull the knuckle and rotor away from the lower control arm. So yes, flip it OP.

That rubber boot will be toast soon,as will ball joint !!
could maybe put a 1mm/2mm spacer on before fitting disc,or as said above get the grinder out.
They got the correct collets in the discs?<if they are a floating disc>?

Hi All,

Thanks I solved the problem by flipping the roll center 180. Megan wasn't give any instructions for it. so it works by flipping it around it creates 1 inches clearance now. it works perfect

Like noodles mentioned you really need some heat shielding for that rubber boot if you want it to survive.
Its probably the same thing for the upper one and maybe the tie rod as well.

You also need to go get an alignment after flipping that. I bet the toe is way out.
