Replacing front struts with OSC quik-fit. Can I use the Q151572L (driver side) for the passenger side as well? They sent the wrong part. I turned the top plate around and it looks the exact same as the old one.
Do you
have the same problem?

If it looks the same as the old one, why put on the new one?

Okay; enough humor for tonight! Yes, you can use it that way. In fact, there is no such thing as a left or right strut on Chrysler products. You get a pair of struts. There is no such thing as a left or right upper strut mount on Chrysler products. You get a pair of mounts. The springs are the same too. You will notice the struts have two mounting holes for the anti-sway-bar links. You use the one that matches that side of the van. Same with the little bracket the brake hose bolts to.

Some do-it-yourselfers would not figure out to spin the upper mount around. That is why they sell them as left and right quick-struts.

Very good, thank you. I was pretty sure but you never know. And the CARiD customer service said they would not return it if had already been installed. Have a great day!
