I tend to agree with Sherwood's statement. As a mechanical system, the spring should respond to compression (not tension) in similar manners, regardless of whether it's placed in one orientation or the other. The force on one end is countered by an equal and opposite force on the other. Reducing the moving mass would mean putting the heavier part closer to the chassis.

I'm just speculating here - I don't know for sure.
