What is the difference between the left and right wing strut assembly?  I have collected 4 sets and the front struts all appear identical, but 2 of the rear struts are approximately 3/16" thicker and have a different rivet spacing at the root.

Thanks for the reply.  I have 2 sets of struts.  The 4 rear struts measure 1.85, 1.91, 1.95 and 2.08.  Is there a difference between the left and right strut assembly or are they interchangeable?  Also, mine have rivets on the trailing edge of both the front and rear strut.

The only difference is the location of the small holes for attaching the fairings.
