Engine mount confusion M116/117

I have a set of engine supports that bolt to the engine block and connect to the engine mount. I bough them as a spare set for my 5.6 project so I would not have to take the ones off my 3.5 engine. My 3.5 engine is in storage so I cannot verify which arm goes on what side. They are not the same length.
Part#s 116 223 14 04 1 and 116 223 12 04 2.
I know the part# defines what side a part goes on but I am seeing conflicting information. If anyone has a 3.5/4.5 108/111 engine laying around with the supports on it maybe you can look at the part#. I don't think it could be seen with the engine in the car. Manual was no help.
Thanks

Think I got it figured out. I think the engine is offset to clear the steering gear box so the longer support goes on the drivers side. They are only about 1/2" different but there must be a reason. I'm not going to drive the car-I just want to get it as assembled as I can so I can store it while we move.
Thanks

When there is a difference in like parts, left and right, the lower number is assigned to the left.

Thanks-I will check and see if that's how they are. I installed them to offset the engine away from the steering box. I'm not driving the car-I'm just storing it. The engine takes up less room in the car.
