The front springs are different from the rear,it sound like you may have the front springs on the driver side and the rear springs on the passenger side (or visa versa)You will be able to see the longer 2 of the set,They go in the rear and are not as thick or stiff as the front.

Water is leaking from the drivers side as soon as you fill it with out the car being on it is a 1988 Honda civic dx hatch back

There is something called a "weep hole" on the water pump. Water seeps out of this hole to let you know the water pump is bad. It is to the lower right of your driver's side motor mount right below the head, but it's on the side of the block. From the bottom you will notice this leaking all over your lower plastic timing cover. When you change this pump you are also supposed to have your timing belt changed.
