Default Differential Carrier Shims

For a C3, can someone tell me which side has the thickest shims, i.e., right or left? Also, which side is the right side? Thanks.

RH side is Passenger.....usually has the thickest shim pack but not always.....the thickness of shims is dictated by gear pattern/backlash requirements.
