Does the XR Carbon have a joint built into the eyelets to allow it to torque? After mounting the shock, the mounting points of the shock/mounting hardware are very tight -no lateral movements, but I am able to twist the body of the shock a fair amount. Is this suppose to happen? I've never seen a shock do this. :confused:

Most DT shocks use spherical bearings. Yes, that would allow twisting by hand of the mounted shock.
