Just always wondered why on my sled the front Fox Shox are mounted up side down. I know they were mounted this way from the factory because you can read Fox right side up.

there is no "upside down" with your shocks. They do this to reduce unsprung weight

I have run them both ways and never noticed an advantage from the reduction in unsprung wieght but I did pit some shock shafts becasue the shafts are more in the line of fire for rocks.

Thats what I see is happening to mine! Wonder why poo only did this a few times. I normally see them the "normal" way.

Same reason motocross bikes switched from conventions to upside down forks....better performance. Theres a reason all the snox sleds are this way.
