Do RE TT shocks work can up?

I am installing the rear RXT2220 shocks and the can is about 1/8th " away from the spring perch when the axle and fully dropped and shock fully extended. Even though it is so close, it looks like it shouldnt really hit the perch. Will this be a problem? Thanks.

I've run other brands of twin-tube hydraulic shocks upside-down, I would imagine RE's can be run that way too.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Make sure you use white lithium grease. I have a smaller vise and couldn't push the pin in with the vice so I had to ream it through. Not fun.
