shock mounts

so, I'm thinking ,, if these shocks were mounted more upright, than at the 45 degree angle, they would give me a better ride, than when at a 45 degree , they act more as a trailing arm, (supposedly for better handlin ) , and besides, it looks like they push the axle rearward as much as they do down, so I'm thinking, it would result in a better ride if they only went up and down...............So, here's what I'm doing................
