Installing the 987 Engine Mount, with Questions

I'm installing the 987 engine mount on my S. The old one comes off fairly easily. 43,000 miles on my '00S and the old one is shot, cracked all the way around. What a confidence killer.

Question:

I'm also installing the 987 "tabs" that sit between the mount and yoke. The 987 parts have a soft foam side and a rubber side, where the 986 parts are just rubber. I can't find the instructions on which side of the 987 tab faces the center of the car and which part faces out. Anybody know?

I couldn't wait, so I took an educated guess. The tab won't rotate with respect to the chassis mounted bracket, so I put the lighter duty foam facing the outside.

Once it's back in the car, you really can't see much.
