Nope, spacers go on the passenger side. Since the spring passes under the
axle, the spacer lowers that side of the car.

I painted mine. Seems like it helped keep them from rusting again quite as

paint dried) and followed the book recommendation of smearing some used oil
on them at each chassis service.
