The only difference left to right is that the brackets for the Sway-bar are on the front of the Control arm.  So if you install them backwards, then you cant mount your swaybar.  (This is for 84+ Cars, I THINK the 83' arms are the same way but I could be wrong).  Do make sure to note the direction the Ball Joints face though.  I believe on your car they curve forward in the front and curve  backwards in the rear.  You dont want to mix that up or your Caster will be WAY off.

As for front to rear, later cars dont even have the welded in ring to support the bushings for the sway bar end links.  Earlier cars had sway bars so I would assume they are the same but I'm not sure.  Just take a look at how they mount.
