    Dear Sir/ Madam,
    I really appreciate for the manuals I got from your site. They are so critical for me to observe my car's health. Now I want to change the front shock absorbers. My question is: Are the right and the left shock absorbers the same? Does one fit in the other side or are they different?
    Thank you so much in advance for your kind help.
    Best regards.
