I purchased a new set but they look different
The Napa Auto Parts store tells me that is normal
for that year. The Coil Spring seems bigger on one of them
Is that normal, for them to be diffferent
Thanks

The larger coil spring goes on the drivers side to compensate for sag. For some reason, the drivers side sits lower than the passenger, so they added a larger spring. If you get them switched, and I know this from personal experience, your passenger side front will be close to 2 inches higher than the drivers side.

Do you have pics of the new ones?

The reason for the larger coils on the driver's side is to compensate for the weight of the battery and gas tank which are both on the driver's side of the vehicle.
