Front Coil spring orientation on IFS

Hello to all. I'm relatively new to the group and have a question about coil spring orientation. I'm installing a aftermarket Mustang II IFS on my 35 chevy and I'm ready to install the coil springs. The springs are different on either end, meaning that one end is just cliped off and the other appears to be ground so that the end is more or less flat. My questions is: Which way does the spring sit. With the ground end up on top against the rubber ring in the spring tower or down against the lower control arm. The instructions are not clear on this. In fact there is no mention at all about this. Thanks

The flat end goes up and fits against the rubber bumper in the top hat. The end that is cut off goes down. If you're using stock Mustang II lower control arms there is a notch where the end of the spring will sit. It's pretty obvious when you look at it. If you're using an aftermarket lower control arm it may or may not have the indentation the stock one has for the end of the spring.

OK, that makes scence. Thanks for the fast reply. Any ideas on spring compression on a bare frame?
