what was 2002 mid year rear shock change?  May-June   Rock auto shows different #s for early and late year.

Is build date anywhere on car?    Vin is 4s3bh686627662866.    Thanks,   Terry

Probably something that makes no difference.

Build date is on a metal tag under the hood on left side, or on a sticker on the drivers door.

Don't know - something benign, part number changes like this are common.

They're interchangeable, i'd just make sure you're getting KYB and call it good.
