Cape Cod Bob You may also need a rubber isolation for the top of the spring. On the MII front springs the flattened end is the top and the cut end fits into a slot on the lower A arm. Isolation pad goes on top in the tower.

poncho62 The spring seat is usually built into the lower "A" frame....of a GM anyways.....We are talking about front springs, right?

Obviously if there is a spring seat, look to see if it has a place for the uncut end to sit. If there's no spring seat it doesn't matter which way you install it unless there appears to be a fitment issue caused by the uncut end. In that case use a disc sander to smooth the end.
