Rear shocks

Why do these trucks have one shock forward and one back of the axle? My 2003 were both back.

I have seen this posted on other sites. My 03 Ford Lightning is the same way. From what I understand it has to do with axle wrap. Having the shocks on either side of the axle reduces the amount of wrap on acceleration.

Yea, I was wondering if someone made a kit to put on both sides.on would this not work? Coarse fuel tanks in the way.

I think this is pretty common.
