    Direction for plugs for bi mode suspension (or Tractive )shocks go in both ways

    Disconnecting the wire that comes out of the dampers and installing new shocks, no problem- but when I installed the new ones (tractive) they connect both ways. It seems like the OEM does too. Is there a "right way" and "wrong way?" It would be shockingly stupid - even for assembly purposes, to make a clip that goes in backwards, but I've seen designers do dumber things (like running the main water line in my house through the garage, all the way up to the third floor master bedroom, and then installing the manifold with 2 dozen lines on the third floor, lol)

    shouldn't matter its a very simple circuit

    designers, engineers, and installers these days are 3 different people which is why you see some silly or down right stupid and dangerous things designed, produced and installed.

    That's what I figured. One way plugs are kind of a standard these days.

    Unfortunately electronic internal adjust shocks have never been very reliable. Reliability is one of the reasons they are almost never used in motorsports.
