can a pro shock be mounted with 20 to 25 degree angle. Wich end is the top. I've seen them mounted both ways and was wondering if this can be done or is one way wrong.

You can mount them anyway you want really. The more you lean it the more you soften it and reduce its travel therefore reducing its effect though. The reason you see them upside down (with the shaft down) is it reduces unsprung weight. Every little bit helps. We usually make 3 or 4 mount holes on the top plates so you can lean it or straighten it more to adjust the feel of the car. I assume you are using the heim joint end shocks so just make sure they do not bind or run out of travel on the heims. Good luck.

thanks for the respond. I am using the heim end. I was hoping you wouldnt say less of a angle. I guess I have more work to do. Thanks again.
