Help my feeble mind!

Thanks Pine!

But I took the assemblies out today and I can't seem to tell the difference? Both strut tower mounts look identical to me.

Are they indeed different? See pics... or do I have something else wrong here?

At first I thought maybe the whole strut was swapped from side to side but I believe if that was the case the sway link would not mount up correctly... am I right?

Thanks for your expertise...
