    do you know for sure? we ordered a pair of front struts online and were told by our mechanic that we ended up with the wrong one for the right side

    Confirmed; Yes they are side specific R & L on front, doesn't matter on the rear, the same.

    Probably got a little bracket welded on the struts for a brake line to be ancored to, other than that the actual strut is the same!! However that said, it IS different then!
