You flip the part that connects to the rear shock. You just rotate the link so the hole is closer to the axle but the top hole stays in the same spot. It's more of a rotating flip not an up and down flip. If that makes any sense. It's a cheap fix but a gt thunder link is much better for your swing arm travel. I heard flipping the rear shock limits the suspension travel. The adjust able links are fine but the gt thunder link is the best way to go with lowering the rear.

I put the crj front lowering kit on my wifes Raptor and flipped the rear link it drop the quad about 3" over all this was a good move for her.. The front end is now 2" wider after the drop.. (It kinda look like a 450) and it handles very good.

My friend did this to his and his nerfs were very low off the ground, but he also ran 18's on the back so that's a couple inches, most ppl run at least 20's.

for the trail the gt thunder link is fine. I have no problems with it just feels a lot better, it's not as tippy. I flipped the link, had 450 shocks on it and it felt very stable but the ground clearance sucked. To lower the front the best way is 450 shocks I wouldn't trust the lowering kit unless your doing flat track or ice racing.
