Pic 2-The large opening(2) should go to the frame mount.
Pic 1-Not a clue........Not sure that is the correct spring.
Who made these springs?

I would measure to see if the center bolt is in the middle between the bushing mounts.
I really don't think that is the correct spring for your '81.

One of those spring eyes should be the same size, as the larger one is on the other spring.

The spring is symmetrical, it doesn't matter which end goes toward the front. The only reason one end has the large hole is it's missing the leaf spring bushing.

No-it's not..........
Look at the spring clamps and you'll see this.
Until you measure from the eyes to the c/bolt, you realy don't know if that bolt is center or not.
