Rear Shock Angle

Whats the maximum angle you can mount a rear shock at without losing it's effectiveness? TJ if you care.

well, straight up and down is the most effective. once you start leaning them inward, they begin losing effectiveness. its nothing really significant until you mount them at 45* or more. its just you begin losing the dampening for the little stuff. at speed is where you would really notice this.
