I am attempting to install new door straps. Bayless says that the strapsit seels are for the right or left door. However, they are not symetrical in shape and easily fit the passenger door, like in five minutes.I have spent hours on trying to get the strap to fit the driver's door with no luck so far. Are these straps even correct for the driver's door?

Well, I got that thing installed although we fought all the way. The key was putting the ends od the spring in a vise and wiring them together while installing and then cutting the wire. I won't go inot my various misadventures.
