How to Index Springs

I'm installing my 2.5" lift today. The instructions say to be sure to "properly index" the springs. What exactly does this mean? Just make sure they are seated as level as possible? Thanks.

On the front springs make sure the coils are rotated into the notch on the lower spring perch and are properly seated on the top isolator. Pic borrowed from another jeeper...

^^ This.

Basically you just need to make sure the springs are oriented the same on driver/passenger side to ensure a consistent ride height. The cutouts on your spring mounts make it pretty easy.

Good luck with the install!

Thx for the feedback. The front was self-explanatory because it has the notches. My main question was on the rear springs. I ended up installing them in the same orientation as the stock springs.
