Rear trac bar install. Need some help...

I am in the process of installing my rear trac bar and I think the directions are not right.
I bought Brazel's Ultra Trac and it has the same instructions as the Blue Ox Tiger Trac.
If I install the rod per the directions the bends in the bar do not line up with the rear diff and will hit it. If I reverse the rod and put the adjustable eye part of the bolt on the passenger side it works fine.
Has any body installed a Blue OX or a Brazel's one on a 2005 or newer E450 chassis?
What side is the adjustable end on?
Sorry I do not have photos. I did not finish the job and plan on calling Brazel's tomorrow since it is Sunday today.
Check out the directions for Hendersons trac bar and you will see that their bar is different.
Their adjustable end on the rod is on the longer straight part of the bar where as Blue OX and Brazels is on the shorter part.
The shorter part of the rod needs to be on the sway bar mount side as it has to kick out to avoid hitting the rear dif.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
