shocks no work... =(

hey guys, as most know i am rebuilding my rig because of an idiotic wreck. my shocks are really being stupid, they hit my rear axle tube, unless i flip them upside down. i did as much reasearch as possible but i only read mixed responses. they are the black diamond a/t's i got with my lift kit. i have shimmed my back end already for my sye, and i figured that would solve the shock problem as well... what should i do? or can i just leave them upside down?

and just for good measure, i was wondering if i did not have my rear differential yoke pointed just under my trans case instead of RIGHT at it, wil everything be ok on my sye?

thansk a ton guys!!

and i have done my reasearch on the shocks, didnt find anything. and i was just wonderin bout the other thing.

Up side down is alright if it is an oil shock. A gas shock rebounds to a certain point and needs to be in right side up.

hmmm... well my answer was, its pretty common that this happens, at least from what i have read. some people just let it dent the shock case and go on with life, but some people (like me) do nbot consider that an option. and from what i read is that its ok for shocks to go in upside down. i dont know if mine is gas or oil tho...
