I cannot tell which direction they go. The holes are the exact same to me. Is it that important or can i have it the wrong way. Is there an easiey way to tell?

One side is supposed to be slightly larger than the other side. Use your best judgement and push it on.

Correctly attaching ball links to balls
Also be careful with the ball links. Contrary to popular belief, they are not bi-directional. Meaning there is a right way and a wrong way to attach them to the balls. One side of the ball link is slightly smaller than the other. As you might expect, the larger sized hole is the "inside" and the smaller size is the "outside". If you install them in reverse you'll have to force the smaller sized hole over the ball and will stretch the "loop" part of the ball end. This will add some slop to the ball link and when added up through all the connections in the head can cause tracking issues or contribute to lack of head precision.

Here are two new links. The difference in diameter is hard to see, but its there. Its a little easier to see the "inside" is very flat and the edges are squared off. The outside diameter is a tiny bit smaller and the edges are rounded off.

In the first pic, is the left one the "inside"?

Correct. Its hard to see but if you try to push in on a ball you'll feel that one way goes on easy and the other way requires a little effort. When you are looking at the link, look for the "flattest side". That goes on the inside.
