OEM front coils question

So I just bought a set of coils that came off a 2013 and I don't know which side goes where. One is marked Orange/Purple and the other is Grey/Purple.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: OEM front coils question

Shouldn't matter! When you buy an aftermarket set, they are not assigned. Unless something has changed they are interchangeable. I don't think my stock set on my 2011 was marked.

The grey/purple (has more coil) is for the (driver) left side to compensate for the extra weight ( driver, battery, gas/gas tank)

You know I just noticed that after reading your comment. That is hilarious! After all these years that's how they compensated for the driver side sag?
