It won't make a difference. The main thing is mounting it so you get full trvel of the shock. There are some limitation on how much angle you should put in the shock before it's dampening is effected. Maybe Jammin knows how many degrees it can be angles before you are hurting the shock???

it is a multi leaf lightning chassis and the shocks are mounted in front of the axle and they have moved the upper mounts so the angle is ok I would think thanks you guys
