I am looking at an 04 Sabercat this weekend, and have noticed that some models have the narrow part of the coils at the top of the shock and some have the narrow part at the spindle. Why is that? Does it matter? Does one way make them easier to change on the trail?

Does not matter if the shock is inverted or not it works the same both ways. Some models have clearance issues with the springs that's why they are mounted different. Or who ever set-up the sled put them on how ever they felt like.

If shocks have remote reservoirs, the res comes off the cylinder part of the shock and is mounted to the side pan, so the shock has to be upside down

General consensus I found at HCS is fat part of spring (coils tight together) should be down. Sound right?

I have mine mounted with the fat side up. Easier to adjust that way being you can grab the fatter tight end of the springs to turn the shock. I also prefer the look. I dunno .....To each his own on this one............

My 04 Sabercat and my wife's 05 Sbercat were the opposites! They still handle great once I played with the suspension. :thumbsup:
