BMR Suspension just arrived, have a question before I start

The BMR suspension package I ordered from Apex came in the other day, and everything looks great. I only have 1 question. Which springs are front and which ones back?

The box dropshipped from BMR due to the holidays and the springs were not labeled, so I've got 2 that are larger, and likewise 2 smaller. Since suspension has never really been my thing I figured that I would ask y'all before I break something by putting the back ones on the front by accident.

please!

Did you just get lowering coils? The rear coils are usually the shorter. Once you dive into it you'll notice comparisons between the factory and aftermarket matching coils...

Yep, just coils and sways. Looks like the coils are the same height though. Just one set is wide and one narrow.

Go to the BMR website and look at the pictures. It looks like the wider ones are for the front and narrow for the back.

There is a great DIY in the DIY section. It's for the Pfadt springs but it's the same for all of them. The ones that are skinny on the top and bottom, and fat in the middle are the fronts. The ones that are roughly the same size from top to bottome are the rears.

If you can't figure out the sways, SELL YOUR CAR NOW.
