I would run the RR spring in front of the housing on the BC. The LR either clmaped in front to the housing or behind on the BC.
As far as indexing I would start with them straight up and down. Hang a string over the tube and let it dangle on both sides. Then adjsut bar lengths until the lower trailing arm bolt is centered between the strings. At the same time make sure you maintain the same forward/backward location of the rearned.

on our dw8 we run a 4 -z setup with the right spring on top of the rear and on the left side on the bc in the back.
we index the bc straight up and down.
seems to work good but can be a bit tight from the center out. we are working on that .
also our front roll center was way off and we corrected it but have not driven it like that yet. the rc is now 3.5" above ground and 4" to the (drivers side) left of center

this year we might try the lr pring on the front of the rear clamped up
