ome shocks right and left

I am currently installing my OME lift kit. I just have couple of questions.

Are the front struts the same for both sides? The numbers are the same so I think it does not matter which side I put them in.

Does it matter if the word OME on the strut faces towards the front or rear?

What about the rear leaf packs?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

None of the components are side-specific.

Also, shocks, not struts

if you add the trim spacer then it needs to go on the driver's side but it doesnt matter what shock you put it on.

And as lot of folks get the shocks and springs pre-pressed (I did). If a trim pack spacer is added (you'd have to have requested that - it costs extra but has been reported to alleviate the 'Taco lean' many experience and provide a more level look).

Anyway, you'd certainly want to get the shock with the spacer on the driver side, if you went that route (I did).
