Shock Boot

My front shock boots are in the up position. Is that normal?

I take it your car is jacked up? Yes that is normal when car is jacked up. When it's sitting normal on ground the boot will cover the shaft.

You can slide that down with your hand if you want. When you put your wheel back on and lower the car the shock will compress push into the boot.

When I removed my suspension to install my jrz's one side was like yours as well, I don't think it's an issue...
