Mounting Shocks Question.....

I have always wondered this. What makes a shock to be able to be mounted upside down? I understand that Bilstein 5150's have the reservoir, but as far has the RE monotubes and the PC MX6. I mean can you mount a regular twin tube shock upside down?

depends on the shock. theyre marked with orientation. i've noticed cheap shocks usually mount can down, better ones mount can up- of course thats for the rear of an XJ. all the shocks with a stem mount for the front go can up.

Well i have the JKS shock conversion and BPE, so i use 4 eye to eye shocks, was just wondering if it would harm anything if i mount my shocks (rustys) upside down. I just like the look better.

besides them leaking out everywhere and you effectively killing the shocks, no.
