Shocks mounted properly?

2004 f350 6.0. I installed a Icon lift but looking at pictures of other shocks (fox, king etc..) I was wondering if I mounted my shocks upside down?

The old shocks had the bar where boots would cover connecting to the frame.
I installed my Icon 2.0 8-10.5" shocks, non piggyback the same way in front and rear.

This wrong?

There are shocks out there for the newer trucks that are mounted upside down (shaft upwards). Might want to just call up whoever you got the kit from. But I am kinda leaning towards your shocks being upside down. Post a picture.

Love the pic!!

Picture was taken after lift was installed (minus rear shocks) Only picture I have but if you go to the bottom right corner you can see front shock.

**Picture is very big.. reason I just linked it.
