Probably noone cares, but there is a reason for the closely wound end going at the top. This minimizes the mass associated with the axle assembly (unsprung mass). Yeah, it doesn't amount to much, but every little bit helps. It's almost like the guy who drills holes in his ignition key. The spring, of course, couldn't care less.
