Default Shock Absorber Arms

I am getting around to installing the rebuit shock absorbers on my 30 town sedan. There weren't any on it when I bought the car. I have several arms for them and wonder which ones are right for this car. some straight and some are curved. These are the long arms. All my short ones are curved. The straight one also has a recessed area where it fits the shock absorber. Which one do I use? Thanks!

30-31s should have the recessed area.

The long off-set arm is a front arm for a truck (AA chassis)
