    Just a quick question regarding shocks - will shocks work properly in the horizontal position if the action moving the shock is changed from vertical to horizontal by a pivot point ? - much like stearing dampers on 4 x 4s

    Early hydraulic shocks used horizontal cylinders with levers. Steering stabilizers on trucks are essentially a shock laid sideways. I don't see why it wouldn't work...
