help with trem saddles!!!

before i ask my question let throw a quick disclaimer in here....i have an ibanez rg470fm and i replaced the lo-trs II with an original '84 fr. well the other day i was chaning the strings and the b saddle split in half when i was tightening the screw that clamps the block against the string. yes, you heard right, it split...the metal split right down the middle. i had the lo-trs II and couldn't wait to order a new saddle from somewhere and decided to put it back on the rg to play until i could get the OFR saddle. i had completely dismantled the lo-trs for cleaning and didn't think anything about the order i took them off in. in what order do the numbers on the bottom of each saddle go? i have two of the following:

2 with a "2" marked on them
2 with a "1" marked on them
2 with nothing marked on them

if anyone could help me out i would greatly appreciate it.

I think the blanks are the "E's" the 1's are the A and B and the 2's are the G and D. They are height adjusted. Just lay them flat on the table and you'll clearly see which ones are the tallest, middle, and shortest. That's how they get the radius.
