GP spring orientation

Ok, installing the group purchase springs, one quick question.

I might be imagining it but it seems that the distance between the coils on the springs is smaller on one end than the other, if they are which side is up???

I put the closer ones down I think just cause when compared to the old springs the coils matched up better that way. That's for the rear, don't have the fronts on yet so I am also interested if I have them right or not. My car is in pieces and won't be back together for another week of two so this info could come in handy.

If memory serves me correctly, there should be a 'notch' where the end of the coil goes into the spring isolator. Can't remember if it's top or bottom. The other end will be flush, and sit against the flush isolator.

It ain't rocket science .
