Here's a photo of the same coil from another angle showing it seated in the perch:

It looks like the spring is not seated in the spring pocket on the bottom, that could have something to do with the springs being crooked.

No, one guy asked a question.
Why are the top and bottom coils smaller in diameter? Or so it seems in the pictures...

the bottoms dont look like they are smaller at all. look at the pic above your post. plus you can tell by how many times the spring coils around its not a rear unless he have some crazy huge rear springs.
