That really is right! There is a lip on the struts that do not allow them to pass through the sleeve anymore than just that! Perhaps you bilstein HD's which are made closer to factory spec since they are intended to be factory replacement? Yes there is indeed a mark on there that says L & R but there is also a little vertical line on the sticker. The vertical line is what needs to be lined up with the space in the knuckle!!!!

P.S. those were not my pictures
