also you guys have to do something about the driver side that hits the spring, most guys won't have the tool to get the suspension to fully hang in order to move the spring, just my advice as I find that piece a real pain, other then that it's a nice setup.
Yes the pic is what its not supposed to look like, i just put my diagram up backwards like a knucklehead. Mine are installed the way you descibe above and work perfectly!

As for the spring rubbing, you dont need to compress the spring. Simply jack up the truck by the frame (not the axle) so the spring unloads. Once the tire is off the ground, the spring is unloaded enough you can grab it and rotate it.
