Reversing the shock will not affect performance so long as there are no interference issues with the frame. (After reversing the shock, decrease its pressure so that you're able to easily cycle the suspension through its full range of motion. If the shock and frame don't touch at any point, pump it back up and you're good to go.)lawnbike said:wanted to reverse my float r rear shock so i can get to rebound adjustment easier. will this change the way the shock performs? any thoughts?
