If you mean the little square-ish cutout or notch where the perch forms a narrow taper, it is oriented about 30 degrees to the rear .... if 0 degrees is defined as pointing straight out to the right or left of the car. Make sense?

I haven't measured this, I am just eyeballing. It would be better if you could look over your old struts to see where the carrier at the pinch bolt left marks on the strut tube.
