I was wondering if anyone knew if putting the spacers on backwards would have any problems - I wasnt paying attention when removing the joint but read online to put the plastic spacer on first facing the engine and then the metal spacer. I later saw it done the other way in another DIY thread. No issues or noises as of now

Are you talking about the washers that you get with a CV joint rebuild kit? Because the orientation of those is kinda important, you better do it properly before the joints pops off or gets destroyed.
