Yes, the hydraulic hoses are longer on the cylinders that are farther away from the pump.
On my US model, the drivers (left) side main and trunk cylinders have longer hoses and the pump is on the passenger (right) side in the trunk.

Thank you I do have a LH and RH it seem so obvious when you open coiled hoses

I rebuilt my cylinders in situ- saves threading the hoses through the body- a lot of people have done this, it's not hard if you set up a temporary workbench alongside the door.
