What's up with the catch cans being right or left, is it just preference or do you need two.

The passenger side is a much higher pressure side than the drivers side and puts the most oil into the intake. That's why most people just go with the passenger side

I have the good struts but they seemed flimsy to me so I took them off. I might try a different brand one in the future.

I had the Redline Tuning bolt-in hood struts on both of my Mustangs. They're sturdy and I never had any issues with them.
