I was wondering which spin would be easier, FS or BS?
Neither - depending on which you learnt doing 180s first and got more comfortable with first, that's what's easier. Some people find FS easier, some find BS easier.
There are a lot of spinning threads in the last week or two already so I won't go into the 360 technique again, but scroll down in the tips/tricks forum and you'll find a bunch of recent threads on spinning, popping and rotation, which should help you get your 360s around properly.
If you can get video of yourself and post it here it helps a ton with us trying to work out what's going wrong in your spin - otherwise it could be any number of things causing you to come up short on your rotation.
