Thanks for the input everybody.
I pulled the struts apart again to recheck the orientation of the bearings.

I will instal the struts next weekend and check them out again.
Yes pulling the strut assembly out of the car does make it easier to do

I installed new bearings.
Yes doing suspension work is dirty and time consuming
