upper control arm shaft

Does anyone know how to tell the difference of right and left on the upper control arm shafts? Me being the true jackass that i am, took my upper arms apart to clean up and rebuild but never marked the shafts.

Pretty sure they are the same for left and right side....just look up the part numbers to be sure.

One other thing to consider is the aftermarket shafts may need to be oriented a specific way. Don't believe the GM or stock shafts have this. Look at the first pic in post 5 of this thread. You will see where the shaft has "wheel side" embossed on the shaft and need to be oriented to the outside or "wheel side" of the car.
