For those who have cut your front coils, does the 'cut' end go down or up?

I bought a set of coils for my '85 and cut off the bottom for one coil but now the set really crooked on the lower a-arm.

On the 88 fronts, I put the cut coil facing downward. The lower control arm have a recessed pocket for the end of the coil spring, so I make sure the cut end is in that recess. The upper spring perch on the 88 is completely flat.

Never paid much attention to the 84-87setup to know if they have the recessed pocket in the lower control arm.

Yep, they've got the recessed pocket as well.
