Default Clutch release bearing question.

I have a 2001 GT and I am installing a new clutch after only a few thousand miles. Ever since I installed it a few months ago the throwout bearing has been making a noise when the clutch wasn't pushed in. I tried a firewall adjuster but it didn't help. The clutch grabbed perfectly maybe a little high but I was happy with it except the noise. So I ordered a new Exedy clutch, new Ford clutch fork, new Ford Racing Throwout bearing and Ford Racing pilot bearing and a new Ford clutch cable. My question is why do these throwout bearings have a bump on them where they slide into the clutch fork? Does it have to be facing a certain way? Probably a stupid question but I don't want a premature failure again. I can take a pic if it helps.

It is to keep the back end of the TOB from rotating in the release lever--doesn't matter how it is inserted into the lever, it will just turn "so far" first time it turns at all...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

Thanks man, I just wanted to make sure it didn't need to be in there a certain way.
