Why separate P/N for front struts on Gen 4?

Why does Generation 4 Taurus have a separate strut part number for the right and left side when the Gen 3 cars use the same part for both sides?

This unique left/right strategy is followed by all major manufacturers of struts for the Taurs (plus OEM).

Prize to anyone who acrually knows for sure....

So if I want to install Gen 3 front struts on a Gen 4 car, do I need to retrofit Gen 3 brake hoses also?
