I need to put shocks on the rear of my A speedster. I cannot use the friction shocks so will use gas shocks.
I need to mount shock with the two ends 90 degrees opposing . Will the shock work right with the two ends mounted in opposite directions.

Not very well, unless you are really good at lining up

Aren't all shocks mounted with the ends in opposite directions?

Are you talking about like Indy Car shock mounts? (Horizontally mounted shocks)

I think he means, "will the shocks still work if they are mounted upside down"?
Because the shocks he has have ends at the bottom that would easily connect at the top and.....
I would set a shock up in a vise or stand one in a corner for a while and try to open and collapse it several times to see if it continues to work.
