RE shocks

When installing these on a 96 ZJ the rubber boot will be up on all four corners, does this sound right?

Depends on what type of shock they are. Which RE did you buy ?

They are meant for a 4'' lift and say they are extreme duty monotubes.

Monotubes can be flipped either way...does not matter. The RE Mono's are designed to be ran with the boots down on our ZJ's. I run the RE monotubes as well.

I was told their are drain holes that if ran upside down will void the warranty. So all four corners are with the boots down? Is this the same for all ZJ's?

The old RC shocks on it now have the sliding end up?

All right I will mount them with the boot down, it looks like you only have a choice in the rear to go the other way. Everyone enjoy these shocks?

They are a bit stiff at first but do eliminate alot of body roll .
