    Cheers Dane. I'll be swapping them over next week if they are upside down. Should the slack be on the top like mine or the bottom

    If I remember my rear springs were symmetrical when they were in the box, yours look different as if they might have a correct orienatation

    Just got this reply from Damien:

    Morning,

    The springs being compressed isn't a problem but the springs need to be the other way with the part number reading correct.

    lol its only one bolt to remove once the wheel is off to get the springs out, you will fly through it now you done it before.

    At least you have peace of mind now.

    I flipped the springs over last night but nearly ended up cross threading the lower shock bolts that go through the drop link, shock, then into the hub! Got a bit hairy at one point but managed to get them in striaght after greasing them up and persuading them in straight.

    She's starting to sit down nicely but the front still looks a bit higher than the rear and it's meant to be 5mm lower!

    Few pics for you as I gave her a quick wash earlier:
