Doesn't really matter, some people run them one way, some run them the other.

Ideally you want them all going the same direction though.

No you don't, look at your tread pattern. One side is running one way, the other side is running the other way.

The dots are just identifiers for the compound, not for in/out.

Don't feel bad, just about everyone does it at least once.

However, they are always marked on the same side...so can easily be used as a direction monitor. If looking at the rig from the port side, you should see all white dots from all 4 tires, or none at all.

Running his "SHOCKS" upside down is to get his center of gravity lower, thus increasing overall stability.

For your shock placement you should at least try it. In some cases it is good to get the shocks inside and the links outside...but some rod ends will not allow it, and cause some clearance issues.

I run Vanquish Razors on my rig, and this really gets my lower links far apart...which combats torque twist.

I have tried the Rovers every direction and combo and feel they work the same either and any way.

All fixed. Thanks for pointing that out to me!!

So I mentioned earlier about the height with it being 7" tall and 2-7/8" clearance. Does that seem about right?

Yeah, that height is about good...but the best way to find out is to run it, and tune as necessary.
