Currently in the process of rebuilding front struts on a 2007 C4S and need to know if front coil springs have any markings to help identify the left rom the right after they have been removed from the strut ?

Thanks.  Do you know if they side specific or identical ?

They are not side specific persay. But if I were re-using springs I would want them to go back on the side they came from.

If you are using new springs then it does not make any difference - just be sure to use the color coded compensation spacers.

 I'm pretty sure I've got the coils going back on the proper struts but was looking for a way to be make sure. As front suspension parts keep coming off work bench space got used up quick.

All other parts were ordered based on duplicating the existing part numbers. When you say "compensation spacer" are you referring to rubber spacers that mate to support ring ?  If so, I was able to determine the part number on the space. 

If the color code is one top of the coil spring and the spacer itself, I won't if they match know until I get the parts in.
