i just did a spring-over on my 1983 cj-7. everything went well. the only thing left to do is weld on the shock brackets. the back needs to be welded to the axel tube, this is a given because it used to mount to the spring plate. the front on the other hand mounted to the axel tube. with the springs on the top, the shock would hit on the spring if i used the same shock mount position, but if i turned it upside down it shouldn't hit (i think). my question is, can i turn my shocks in the front and mabey the back upside down? and will this affect the way the jeep rides. also what brands of shocks can be mounted upside down (i know some cann't be). another question is, where would the best place to mount the shock brackets be, on the side of the axel tube or on the top? THANKS!

I believe that any gas charged shock can be run upside down with no adverse effecrs. I run the rear Doetsch Tech shocks upside down in my YJ, haven't had any problems.

most shocks can be run up side down. do not do this with black diamond xt shocks they do not like this.
