Hi, my whiteline front shocks came in boxes one 120250 and one 120260, so they have different part numbers on the boxes, now silly me took them out of the boxes and now I don't know which one is which. There's no labelling on the shocks themselves. So what's the difference between left and right front shocks cause i've looked at them both and they look the same?

Thanks
Ben

when i changed the suspension in my eb both front shockies were exactly the same part number and everything. perhaps they sent you one wrong box?

if they look the same then i wouldnt be worried about it

They are different.
Whiteline list 120250 as the front left for EA-EF, 120260 as front right for EA-EF (straight off the store on their website).
Always put things back in boxes lol
You 100% sure theres no markings on the shocks?
Even if they were, I'm thinking the right/left difference comes down to the revalving whiteline do before they send them out :?
Don't know what else you can do?

one could be beefier for the right (drivers side) - you'd presume that's where someone's going to be sitting the most :lol:

but i doubt it. my whiteline gear was just front/rear, no left/right differences

Its the position of the ABS cable bracket that is different between right and left, don't worry it will be obvious when you install them.

I dunno what the difference is? A strut has the bracket for the coil spring to sit on maybe?
