ly7244 is cool... so far.
Front Struts - L/R specific or universal

For the front struts I see different manufacturing models that have Left-specific/Right-specific part # and some vendors it is just "Front" only. What is the difference and does it matter? Are the coil springs L/R specific or completely interchangeable? Thanks.

Shocks, not struts.
To my knowledge, the only side-specific part would be the brake line mounting tabs. That can be fixed effectively with zip ties.

fleetw00d is very helpful fleetw00d is very helpful
Some manufacturers make side specific shocks (like Honda did) with the brake line tabs for just one side, some put the tabs for both sides on each shock so you can use the same part number on both sides. The springs are not side specific.

I know the konis have different part numbers for each of the front shocks. They aren't struts.
