Rear suspension cams

So after doing a rear suspension rebuild (new pillowballs, bushings and wheel bearings) I had a shop do an alignment. The rear cams were upside down. They told me that is not unusual when doing an adjustment. I suspect they were just lazy. What do you guys think? I forgot to mention, I am running Eibach springs that are about 1 inch lower. Otherwise everything is stock.

Be about 5 secs work to install that first cam so that it didn't risk slipping if they did it correctly. You've had monkeys masquerading as humans work on the car sorry to say, more than likely the alignment will be ***** with that quality of work too.

That first one... Sigh... Morons... It will very likely slip eventually since it doesn't have the U shaped channel to hold it in place.
The others seem installed correctly unless my tired eyes missed something.
