Anyone know what is the correct orientation of this, I think they were fitted wrong by the PO, so which is correct way forward and correct side for the one in the picture?

Anyone know why they have a plate built in, like a castor plate, but should have no effect as is it is on the bottom of the spring, and not between the  spring and the axle.

Well - by the looks of ELLEX those sprongs are so flat that they have never been off
and all shockles and pons are also still stock standard

Will prob mount the way you suggest irrespective of the Toyodiy diagram.  That was they will be the same orientation as the rears

JT, is that hole for the centre bolt i nthe middle?  Looks a little offset.  Maybe check against plate on bottom of axle where centre bolt goes in to check similar offset - that is if it is offset.  :-\

So you now have a chassis with springs and axles bolted back ?  :jt:

Mark I will measure, but I think it is an optical illusion.

Theo the pic from Toyodiy is opposite to what everyone else is saying.

That pic is the left front spring (PS) with the narrow to the front, however in that pic the straight side is on the inside, and not as per all the other pics.
