Yes, both sides are the same. While considering the purchase of new ones, you don't want to go the "cheap route ". Try and locate Lobro or GNK, those brands seem to be the go to Manufacturers for quality. Same goes for the CV Boots. Its a nasty job you don't want to have to do over...spend wisely. Quality parts are cheaper in the long run. I have no experience with the complete shaft sets sold by Bus Depot but search around for some reviews. I had a set of Lobro joints and Meyle boots installed by my mechanic about a year ago. When my 82 Westy was up on the lift getting an oil change, I noticed that the year old Meyle Boots were splitting at the seams. I had them replaced with a set of Lobros and so far so good.
