    I think I may have I stalled my leaf springs the wrong way. Any assistance would be appreciated. Going from general springs back to OEM stock.

    Here is what leads me to believe that I installed my general springs backwards. Or maybe the general springs are assembled incorrectly

    You're good. The double wrap goes to the front, the single eye towards the back.

    For example:
    (picture found on the interwebz)

    The spring eye to the right is what connects to your shackle.

    The spring eye to the left with the extra part of the spring under it goes to the front mount closest to the cab.
