need some help I might have screwed-up

I was changing my front struts to yellow Koni's with stock springs. The Koni struts for some reason the lower spring perch is not welded in. So I thought I put it in correctly, but after I installed it, it looks like it might be a 1/4 of a turn off. Their is a tag on the spring that was facing out, now it faces forward.
2nd thing is I put the left spring on the right-side and the right spring on the left side.
I am looking for help, not for people telling me how stupid I am. I feel bad already. Thanks

Does it matter if the front spring is 1/4 turn off from when you took it out?
