Ok if you clamp the LR in front it will give more forward bite, but its only going to work when your on the throttle and when you back out the car will drop violently unless you can control it with your LR shock.

Putting the LR on the birdcage behind the axle will allow the cage rotation to index towards the spring. Therefore more forward bite (rather than the spring floated in front)

The reason you put the RR in front on the cage is so when you release the throttle the cage rotates towrds the spring to help control the axle and chassis movement.

Also you can put the RR spring on top of the rear housing, that will keep the axle wrap-up from effecting the RR spring.

Hope that helps!
