Doesnt matter the ride wont change. On Off-road trucks this is sometimes done to gain more clearance around the springs.

This is an answer I recieved after a similiar question I sent to Billstein a few months ago:


Sir:

Thank you for your inquiry on Bilstein shock placement and use.
Almost all Bilstein shocks are designed to be universal and fit a variety of different applications. Bilstein uses high performance valving and seals in the manufacturing of every model shock we make to provide the best performance for any situations your vehicle may be used for. Unless specifically noted as "Directional" on the shock housing Bilstein shocks may be mounted with the shock body in the up or down position.
Exceptions to this are Bilstein Liquid Filled shocks and Bilstein Resevoir shocks which are designed as specific vehicle fit shocks intended for High Performance use and should be mounted as specified.
Hopefully this will answer any questions you have on mounting and use of your Bilstein shocks.
