I located the bottom end of the FRONT coils against the stopper in the the A arm. not the crossmember. I had to go and have a look to check, sorry for the confusion.
The top end of the coil sat about half way from the stopper up in the crossmember on both sides.
(same as yours) this doesn't seem to cause any problems though.
I can't see that it would make any difference, but others may disagree ?
I didn't pay that much attention to where the originals front coils located up top, but they were 1/2 a coil longer so I guess they located near the stopper in the crossmember also. The hole ? don't know, I assumed a drain hole but a locating hole makes sense.
I'll check my chassis manual again.
the REAR coils only locate against a stopper up in the chassis, so you can't go wrong there.
