Default Coil spring positioning...

Hi, bought one new coil spring and 2 front struts for my 406hdi, 2003 saloon.. After clamping the old spring onto the new strut it sat straight and in place. Then after clamping the new spring onto the new strut it didn't sit as straight as the other, even though everything was in the right place?..

Is this a case of letting it bed in or is something not right?

Thanks for any replies..

Did you fit the spring the right way up?. It is also best practice to replace springs in pairs as the old spring will have weakened slightly compared to new causing possible imbalance across the axle
