For the rear springs. When installing them. Is the eibach logo with the part number suppose to face towards the front of the car or facing towards the rear of the car? I had a buddy of mine install the springs for me about a year ago. Hes a Ford tech. I was under the car taking a peak at my exhaust. Then I noticed the springs being like this. With the rear. On one side. The logo and part number is facing toward the front of the car. And the other side the logo and part number is facing towards the back of the car. Isnt both suppose to be matched up face wise?

Don't quote me on this, but I don't think the way that you are describing it has any factor in it. I think the variable is whether or not the Eibach is readable normally, or upside down that makes the difference.
Someone can clarify this for us I hope.

Don't use the printing as a source of orientation for the spring....As long as the spring is seated properly in the cup, it dosen't matter. (with the end of the last coil butted up to the indentation in the cup)
