Does the left upper strut mount differ in the ST165 vs the ST161 or ST162?

They have different part numbers, but Toyota doesn't tell us what makes them different or whether they can be substituted for each other. ST165 uses 48609-20010 and '88+ ST162 uses 48609-20090. Does that answer the question, or is there some other combination we need to look at?

If it helps, KYB uses the same part # for both Alltrac and GTS models. But I've never compared side by side.

Interesting note. Sometimes aftermarket cataloguing shows fitment that is patently wrong, but it also wouldn't surprise me if the parts were built to the same dimensions. Toyota may have built one with a different type of rubber, or it may have a different part number for any number of other reasons, like being built by a different vendor than the one who built the other one.
