Hi guys,
i'm building a stumpjumper fsr XC comp, and i have bought a shock for it.
the shock is a fox float RL, it has rebound and lockout adjustments, but the remote lockout gets in theway when i am trying to fit it the way the old shock was fitter (with the shaft on the back)
can i turn the shock around so the shock is on the front?
does it affect performance?

thanks

It won't matter if it's Back to Front or upside down,
As long as it doesn't foul the frame during it's travel you will be fine mate
It'll just do it's job :wink:
