Hello JWC,

From what information I have the top wishbones have a front and a rear which fit either side.
The bottom wishbones have identical pairs, right front or left rear and left front or right rear. That is the top wishbones can be either way up and the lower are one way up only. If these have been mixed up it will give some strange geometry.
Normally the top pivot will be slightly behind the bottom to give some castor angle which gives the steering self centreing.
I can't help with the four holes, so perhaps someone else can help on that aspect.

Good luck
