left hand or right OME spring question

So I have a pair of ome 751 springs from a nas 90 going into my rhd 110. I am assuming the springs are handed due to the tabs saying L/H and R. So the left spring accommodated for the driver in the NAS so it would go on the ride side of my rhd correct.

Normally the longer spring is meant to go on the driver's side with the stupid assumption that you have no friends..... You may need to test and see how things sit....

On a 110, the truck is heavier on the left side, which confuses things. Clear like mud?

Here is what I would do.

- Park on a flat and level surface.
- Carefully measure the vehicle height left and right.
- Take out the existing springs and measure their free length.

Use the above to decide which side makes the most sense to install the longer of the two new springs.

It currently has a 1/4 lean towards left side. Will check measurements on current Springs when I get them out.

That's funny. My OME aren't labeled LH and RH. They're labeled DS and PS.

That would make more sense.
