Fitting Old Man Emu Springs (“A” and “B” labels) anyone know...

I have just bought a set of OME shocks and springs for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Can anyone please tell me which way round OME springs should be fitted? They have labels with “A” and “B” printed on them.
Am I right in thinking that the “A” spring goes on the Driver’s side???????
Not sure if it would make a difference, but my Jeep is a UK market vehicle with the steering wheel on the right hand side.... so “Driver’s” side is the opposite to what you guys have.

Regards,
Paul

YOu are correct. That's how mine are at least. I believe the "A" is a slight bit stiffer for drivers weight.

Yes, one spring is drivers side and one pass, but you need to read the instructions carefully as most are printed for Australia and they have right hand drive so you need to swap the sides the springs go on for left hand drive.
