Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you solve your problem

Rick the plumber :

The seats and springs go in the valve body before you insert the stem. If you look into the valve body you will see 2 black circles. This is the face of the seats. I usually insert a key (any car key or house key) to get them out. Then insert the spring first (smaller end facing your) then the small neoprene seat. Note the way the existing ones are oriented with the cupped side facing the spring
