    Which is the front caliper on XT's?

    I just got a set of XT discs (the older quad-piston ones), and I'm not sure that I've set them up properly. I set them up with the caliper with the straight mount on the front fork, and the caliper with the angled mount in back (sorry, it's kind of hard to explain). Anyway, in the back, because of the angle of the caliper, the hose runs in towards the seatstay of the bike, and has to bend sharply. It's probably not a big deal, but the instructions didn't come with a picture of the two calipers. I hope this isn't too confusing to understand, if I had a digital camera, I'd post a picture. Thanks.
