    If I were returning my truck to stock and the springs were not labled, how would I know if I had them on the correct side? Also, What handling problems would I have if I did install them on the opposite sides? Thanks, I am trying to help a friend with his truck.

    Actually, left vs. right does matter. Driver's side usually has more wear on it, so it will sag more than the passenger side...

    Since you're returning your truck to stock, temporarily place the springs in the truck to see which way it leans. I, personally, would want it to lean more towards the passenger side.
