ignition coils left and right

i am planning to swap my 2 original ignition coils and have two replacement working coils but they are both from the one side of the vehicle and i noticed when i looked inside my car the layout/configuration is different on each side of the vehicle. do you know does it matter if i put one on the car that has a slightly different layout/configuration? the two i have are the same layout as for the passenger side (right hand drive). so can i use one for the driver side, providing i get the cable layout to fit, or will it cause some kind of electrical issue on the car? i noticed that the two small wire connections have different diameter threads and so would be careful to ensure that the cables are wired correctly of course.
