Cush Drive Spacer-which way does it go?

DISCLAIMER: I DID pay attention to how I took it apart. It just doesn't seem right so I thought I'd ask.

There is one spacer INSIDE the cush unit on my '02 Daytona SSSA. The spacer has an "inie" side and an "outie" side. It's surface is only raised and recessed about a 32nd of an inch if that. If I didn't clean the grease I may not have noticed it (and maybe not somebody else who might have gone in there as the big nut was not tightened to spec).
My question is this, should I put the raised portion (outie side) of the spacer towards the bearing, as I think it should be or the other way around? Once again, this pertains to the spacer you see once you have taken the drive housing apart. Thanks, Mark.

Also, none of the parts fiches or repair manual explain or show it in enough detail to verify it's proper installation.

Are you talking about item 13?
I don't recall that being dished - the Belleville washer item 3 Would certainly be (convex side to nut) but would not see any reason for 13 to be.

Yes, it is part #13. I just inspected it closer. I believe it is a spacer which has become slightly deformed. It is meant to have flat smooth surfaces (like any other spacer) but under the pressure of the nut has formed itself to the shape of the center part of the bearing and to the splined part of the cush unit. I have never noticed this happen to a spacer before.
I reversed it's direction and reinstalled it but I will order a new spacer at some point.
