Would it be okay to mount the rear shocks like this?

    Sorry I don't have a pic to post. You know how the stock shocks mount, one angled forward and the other angle backward? As a temporary setup would it be okay to mount both of them angled forward? I'm still waitin for the weather to get nice so I can make a more permanent location for the shocks. Thanks

    I'd try that man, but these 9000X's really put a dent in my wallet /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
