Default Factory RS Spring Verification

So I'm putting the factory springs back on my 99 RS. I didn't label them when I took them off. How can I verify what springs go on the front and back? Any help is appreciated

You'll find out after disassembling the first strut. A spring from the opposite end will not fit. Left and right are the same.

So I installed the so springs. Fronts are good, however, the passenger rear is 1/2 inch higher than the drivers. I know for a fact these came off of my factory rs. Anyone run into this?

Were the two springs the same length before compressing? Are the upper seats and mounts "clocked" the way they should be?

With both spring sitting next to each other, they are the same width and length. The weird thing is, the passenger side with the higher sitting spring is the one without a lower rubber insulator. The drivers side has both rubber insulators but is still 1/2 lower than the passenger. They both sit in the spring perch the same as being clocked.

I meant to refer to the alignment notches at the edge of the upper spring seat.
