    I'm pretty sure there is. Driver side and Passenger side. But I couldn't tell you which is which. Sorry.

    ^ yup... front to back ... side to side.

    The ones with the lines and the c clip that adusts the height go in front.

    The rear ones are solid, no adjusters, and have "accordian" like dust covers on em.

    Oh,

    I have heard the Coils are Side Specific.... just what I read... doesn't make sense but why risk it.

    Coils are side specific, shocks are not.

    Do you know why though? Configuration of the coil, does it have more or less compression, pressure, strength? Just curious

    Driver side has a little more spring rate to account for the fuel tank, battey, driver, etc...

    Most times, you have to pay attention to which coils are removed from where. I had a list of the paint marks on teh coils of the second gens, but my Wife threw it out...:(
