1973 911E Trailing Arm Differences

Suspension

Vehicle Information: Model: 911E; Year: 1973; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.4; Total Mileage: 76,000;

My vehicle, apparently, has two different trailing arms. My left shock almost touches the half shaft when the car is jacked up. The right shock is about 1" to 1.5" away from the half shaft. It appears the shock mount location is different on the two trailing arms. I had the left trailing arm replaced last year. I am not sure which one is correct, and why the differences? This must affect the handling to some degree, since the shocks are at slightly different angles. I understand the '74 and later cast aluminum trailing arms are direct replacements for the earlier models. I would probably like to change to these aluminum ones if I can.
