Yes. The A-body cars have front springs with one open coil and one flattened closed coil. The flattened coil goes up into the frame. The open coil fits into the pocket in the lower control arm. Note that the pocket in the control arm is contoured and the end of the coil only fits in one position.

The "A" body lower control arms should have two small holes in the spring pocket. The spring is properly positioned when ONE hole is covered by the bottom coil, but the other is open.
