HELP WITH REAR COILOVER INSTALL

I tried my best finding my answer without posting but have no damn luck.
I need help with my install. I'm unsure of the rear portion and want to be 100% on it before moving forward.
Summary.
2007 mazdaspeed 3
Godspeed SS coilovers.

Everythings good. My noob question is the rear spring. I'm not sure the !@#$% to put in correctly.
The rear spring goes with the height adjuster but it doesn't sit flush if it goes on top and on top of that theres a huge bolt that holds up with the frame which makes it worse for me to figure out. Mine comes with a bolt and screw so the heck !?!?!?
Any advice or directions towards the right post would help. PLEASE

I am pretty sure the height adjuster is supposed to go on the bottom and bolt inside the control arm pocket, not on top.

Thats why is confusing because if I do... Then there's no way to adjust once installed because if I put on bottom, the spring gets in the way. Now if I put on top.. I have access.

But that's the way BC coilovers are designed, you have to drop the lower control arm to adjust them. BC Coilover Install
Tein are the opposite and have the adjuster on top. Tein Super Street Coilovers(GSM98-A1AS2) - 2004 to 2016 Mazda 3 Forum and Mazdaspeed 3 Forums

Did you even get any instruction with the coils? If not then they are probably junk.
