Well, I believe its accepted good practice to replace both sides, same as with brake pads/discs, shock absorbers (to name a few), its because these item's performance changes over mile(age), then any difference between old & new will affect the car's overall stability/behaviour under emergency scenarios.
It's possible that due to the early failure, it was deemed that the opposing side's performance had not deteriorated to a noticeable level.
Hope it all works out though - make sure you speak to the relevant party - not just the first person you see behind the desk.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
