Hi Frank:

By the book yes.  I have had bearings in which the thrust making was on the 
other side unfortunately.  So I always check the shape of the inner and outer 
race.  The inner and outer race have different size lips on each side of the 
bearing.   The larger lip on the inner race goes to the inside.  If they are 
reversed the bearings will seperate and the wheel will try to leave the car.  

I assume that you do not have a cracked axle and the swivel pin bushings are 
also good.
