empire mini gs poppet valve

I recently rebuilt my poppet valve I noticed one side of the spring is a little bit bigger than the other side not sure what side should face the back cap?

The bolt spring is tapered, but the poppet spring isn't. In the case of the bolt, one end should "click" onto the bolt (small side).

The poppet spring on my Axe was a little bent so one end was a little bigger. It's orientation doesn't matter.

I look at the poppet valve spring closely and set it on a flat surface one side of it is a little bit bigger even the one in my spare parts kit that came with my Empire mini gs is like that too not sure if I should have the little bit bigger side facing the back cap or not?
