You can angle them, remember the more you angle them, The more you lose what they where designed to do... Me I don't ''NEVER'' angle them.. I have always looked at it like this...Take a board 4 feet long,and set it up level, Which way do you think the board would be more supported.. Take the shock's put them all the way out on the end's,, Now put them straight up and down.. add weight to the top of the board..It will be more stable,, now take the same set up,, And now take just the top of the shock's angle them inward a little...The weight on the board will not be supported as well..The more you angle the shock, the more the shock stop's doing what it was made to do...Me myself ,I think the more you angle them,, the more you create the car to want to roll... (KINDA LIKE A C-SAW)..I know the book's say different,, But I think they are wrong,, That's me... Everyone will tell you it will help body roll... Yea OK... I have set up too many cars with the shock's straight up in down,, and ''NEVER'' had one car that had bad body roll, I have set up many that way,, And rode in the same car's set up with them on angle's,, And ''NEVER SEEN ONE ACT DIFFERENT''.. I know a few people will not agree with this,, But I really don't care....
I will continue building them the way I do it.. This should really bring them out to attack this respond..
Good luck with what you do..
