Swift Spring Issue - Please Chime In

Just received my set of Swift springs today and wanted to confirm the orientation of these prior to install. I've been doing some digging and the information I found says to install with the text oriented so it is readable, but I have seen pictures of Swift springs in different configurations on this board. At first glance, it seems that the rears I received may not be correct...

Can anyone please confirm if the springs in the pictures attached are oriented correctly and can be installed with the text facing outward and right side up?

Also - is it required to remove the pinch bolt? I watched a view guides and they don't seem to be removing this...only the endlink bolt and then the top spindle nut.

Looking for a problem free install...

yes text side up. make sure you properly line up the fronts at the top of the mount.

no need to remove pinch bolt. look up emmanu le design spring install on YouTube - same procedure.

Interesting that the helper spring portion in the rear sits on the bottom. My Bilstein B16 rears had them at the top.
