there is definately a top and bottom. Any writing on the spring should be right-side-up so you can read it. Or usually the narrower part of the spring is the bottom.
As for front and back. The stiffer spring is the front, which is usually also the thicker spring. Just put your weight on the spring to find out which one is stiffer.
New springs will usually tell you which ones are front and which ones are rear.
