Cut top or bottom of coil spring?

Lowering my 1996 shortbed. Plan to cut about 1/2 coil off. What is best, cut bottom of spring or top of spring?
Is there an indented "stop" in the upper spring pocket that would need lining up with the coil end?
I know there is an indented stop in the lower control arm. Is this where I should line up the coil end after cutting and re-installing?
