the cylinder pushes the car up


the cylinder is hollow through the center and the oil pushes the ram up, pushing the car up

All cylinders can push cars up.

But, yes, he's right. Instead of having a port on the bottom of the cylinder casing, the fluid actually travels through the PISTON into the cylinder body. Doesn't matter though, same effect, the piston extends.

Keep in mind though that there IS a hole the length of your cylinder piston... Less metal... Reverse flows aren't as strong as regular cylinders and the piston definitely flexes more. This flexing can cause more wear inside the cylinder walls causing shorter o-ring life. I would suggest you not put them on something as heavy as, say... an LHS or something. :)

No not good at all, use regular flows. They will not only be easier to mount, they will be stronger and last you longer ;)
