lowering spring installation question

I pulled my forks apart today to get the lower legs powder coated and to install my lowering kit. When I pulled the forks apart the way all of the components were installed did not match from side to side. The little valve thingy with the little spring that goes between the dampener rod and the spring was installed with the spring up on one of the forks and down on the other. Which way is correct?

Looks like someone's been in those forks before. What you're describing sounds like Gold Valve Emulators. Do they look like this?: http://racetech.com/page/title/H-D%2...mulator%20Kits

If that's what you've got, they should be installed spring side up.

It looks very similar but its not gold and i cant see where they are adjustable. To be quite honest it looks like a factory piece rather than aftermarket. Thanks for the heads up on that though. I will go ahead and install them spring up.
