Ordered some OEM replacement struts...think seller got them wrong

I bought a set of Monroe front struts for my daily driver. It's an '01 Tacoma TRD.

Anyway, these arrive today. They are marked correctly on the box, but I opened them up and saw that they are completely different. Different spring mount height, different spring mount shape (one is completely horizontal and flat, one is shaped to accomodate a coil spring).

Question is, did I get the wrong struts? Or at least 1 wrong strut? Seller thinks he got it right, but the Monroe site cites the same part # for both sides.

I don't know, but those don't look like mine. I've got billy HD's, and they have a wide circular plate that holds the spring. Do yours have that and you just didn't put them on yet? Also, mine were both the same, but my left and right springs themselves were marked different.

Send them back. They should look like this


I am pretty sure the spring perch should be welded on also.
