^ right/left LCA = same part number. They're symmetrical.

I should mention that prior to this repair, I noticed the old right-rear coil spring bulging a bit also, but never looked closer, as I was replacing it anyway and figured it was just the typical Ford coilspring in pre-failure mode. So, I don't recall if the old right-side LCA was crooked like the new one is.

Does anyone have a stock early model ZX3 that they can take a peek under the rear and see if the left & right LCA's sit perfectly symmetrical to each other? (ie. both coil seats are parallel to ground, no off-axis coil bulge)
