The more sagged ones were originally on the left..
Atleast, in my case they are.. (somthing to do with a 200lbs driver. constantly climbing in.

Re: which springs are which

Not only do you have to keep track of which are the fronts and which are the rears, but you have to keep the orientation of them straight. The front springs will have one end that is the front and one end which is the rear. The pin for the axle location is not in the center of them. I can't remember what the measurements are, otherwise I would post them. Just use your stock springs as a reference.
