please help with FK Coilovers, must be wrong ?

we ordered 4 set of FK Coilovers ... one pair (front shocks and springs) looked like this , which must be wrong right ?


then i got 1set where both in front looks like the one to the left ...
and 2 sets that looks like the one to the right ...
accordoing to me it should be shit the same in the other 3 sets cause they are all the same ... but the 4th set (showed in pics) are two diffrent shocks...
which ones are the right ones ?

2 cars are E91 pre-lci
1 car is E90 LCI
1 car is E91 LCI

here is the link to the coils:

I think they use different strut housings depending on what they have in their stock...the strut internals are the ones that matter. FK is a cheap suspension...what do you expect. They seem to have stamped the same part number, so it's good.

They number from the top has different markings of -1 and -2 because they are for the left and right struts (which are different in any BMW e90 suspension, not only FK). The number from the bottom can be the batch number, etc.

If the other packages that you have bought are for the same car (BMW e90) then it's even more evidence that the different built struts are ok.

Of course, you can email FK about this...
