Rear struts side Interchangeable?

I have Koni Yellows and Eibach Sports on my 04 Type S.

I was trying to troubleshoot a little noise coming out of the rear and I thought I would swap the rear struts to see if the problem followed or not.

Anyhow when I was time to put them back, I noticed that the bracket where the lower hole of the shock bolts into is at at angle. The strut would not go in as it was, i had to grab a bolt to use it as leverage to spin the Koni in place to until it aligned with the bracket.

Which begs the question, are the struts side specific? Turning the shock did make it "slanted" a bit instead of been centered inside the springs.

I put everything back, seems to be driving fine, but i was wondering if i should take it all apart and put it back like it was.
