First time tinkering with my 4.5 XDm 9mm...Does it matter what end of the recoil spring the guide rod gets reinstalled?

I am guessing no but just wanted to check.

Thanks

Generally speaking all pistols will want to have the tighter end of the spring to be on the flared/non moving end of the rod.

Either this is such a noob question most don't want to bother to respond or most don't know...? Pretty straight forward question here.

2nd post answered ya, doesn't matter on an xd, does on many others though, if it's a one piece , spring and rod together, it does
