Springs installed upside down?

While replacing some suspension bushings this weekend I wiped off one of the springs and noticed they were Eibach pro-kit springs - kind of a suprise. Anyway, I looked at the Eibach website FAQ and they mention that the springs should be installed so the writing is right side up - mine are all upside down. Is there any point in changing them around?

Springs are usually required to be installed in a particular orientation due to differences in end design geometry in order to properly fit the spring pockets in the chassis and control arm.

My recommendation would be to spend a dime and call Eibach for confirmation and reasons if it's worth it to you or install them in the recommended manner.

If orientation wasn't important, they wouldn't point it out in the FAQs.
