Do rear coil springs have a top or bottom?

When installing coil springs, does it matter which way is up ?
To me they look alike bottom and top.

Thanks.
The rear ones.

Sweet,
I put the rears on last night and I was concerned I put them on the wrong way.

If its a progressive rate spring, yes, the end that has more pitch goes on the axle side. If its just a regular consistent spring, you're fine.
