    The horizontal one is to control wheel hop. That was the fad back in the early to mid 90's.

    A buddy of mine has a 72 blazer with shocks horizontal mounted similiar to that.. He mounted them that way about 12 years ago... I cant say how much difference they make because I never rode in it before they were installed..His is the only one I have seen like that around here...
