Hi all

just bought titus ftm carbon ... RSM_P1.jpg and I've just noticed that my shock is the wrong way round to the 1 pictured

1 will it make much difference
2 will it damage it

Any help will be appreciated

    No difference, search and you are not the first person to make this comment, you'll probably find all the answers in another thread!

    As long as you can access the adjusting screws OK, it shouldn't make any difference. Most builders tend to put the fat end (thus adjusting screw) at the top, it's easier to access.
