Default Urgent Question about stock springs!

Hey Everyone,
I am in the middle of changing my suspension back to stock (95 Honda Civic DX) and had a quick question for you.
Which spring goes where? Are the longer ones for the front or back?
I think I may have made a bonehead error putting the shorter ones up front. The front end is just as low as it was on the Ground Control coilovers.

Thanks for the help guys!

Yea, once I realized I fucked it up, I realized I went against all logic. Highly embarrassing move on my part. Oh well... at least I know I won't ever fuck that up again.
