I would not swap them side to side.
many many many bearing manufacturers specifically state not to swap wheel bearings from one side to the other due to the bearings wearing specific to the race. the cv joint would be the same. it's turned one direction for hundreds of thousands of miles, the grooves are mated to the wear patterns in the balls, the oil keeps everything lubed correctly, and the cleaning and re lubing gets any wear material that's developed over the years out. I vote to keep them on the original side.
