The adjuster nobs are supposed to be mounted down for best performance. There is a big "NOTE" on the instruction page attached to them stating that. I do think the nob is kinda hard to turn, I want to order my speed key from them but have yet to do so.

Its VERY easy access for the rear knobs but the fronts are a pain to get to.

Looking sweet Froggo

IIRC, the MX6s should be mounted adjuster knob down both F&R; that's how I did mine anyways

Edit: I just noted Kyle posted the same thing

Not to burst anyones bubble or self cofidence but they can be mounted "upside down" in the back, wont hurt anything. I've already had plenty discussions about this and its ok.

OK, be like that, but when your rear end bounces off a big rock and you flip over your nicely built WJ (no exo-cage on) out in the trail, let us know so I can remind you that we told you so.... j/k

Froggo27 is right, monotubes work the same way in every position, because as the name says, they have only one tube, so no gas to escape from one chamber to the other like in twin-tubes. They advise to use them "upside down" for two reasons- to limit unsprung weight (with the weight of axle and wheels, shock body won't make much difference ) and to protect the body from damage. The second one is a bit more serious, but still I can't see many situations when you can bend it.

Froggo27, great rig, congratulations!

But this red color on the cover... hmmm... might be useful only if you loose your axle on the trail at dark night
