toytec coilovers left vs right

I remembering browsing around and seeing someone post that there is a difference between the left and right front coil over for this kit and I can't seem to find it. Can someone elaborate on this and give me the info? Also does it for the same on the rears for the Bilstein 5100 rear nitrogen gas shocks? Is there a specific left vs right shock?

And one other question. This kit comes with TT-RS - rear axle degree shims for proper pinion angle alignment (Not pictured...on the How-tow for installing an add-a-leaf, this part wasn't used? Is this necessary or just an added improvement? And where do I use this?

U may or may not need the shims - i started w/o them, then got vibe's. Installed the shims, and it cut down the vibes a little

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Only the OEM springs are side specific. The Toytec coilovers are not.
