Brake Shoe Hold-down Springs

I have all the front brake parts that were sent to me for my 1951 Henney. Two of the little shoe hold-down springs that attach them to the backing plate are a noticeably longer than the other two. Which shoe gets the longer and which the shorter?

Today was my deadline to get the front brakes back together before closing up my Oregon shop to return home on Friday. Therefore I guessed that the longer spring goes to the rear spring but if thatís not correct and someone comes up with a definitive answer before I come back, I can easily reverse them.
