When you are about to dublicate (and making sure that your pivot point is at the right place)....go into edit...duplicate options....make one of the scales -1 (it depends what way you want to duplicate...normally it's either -1 in x or z)...and to get it so that when you change one thing on one side and it applies it to the have to select "instance" in the geometry type
