    Reversing the shock will not affect performance so long as there are no interference issues with the frame. (After reversing the shock, decrease its pressure so that you're able to easily cycle the suspension through its full range of motion. If the shock and frame don't touch at any point, pump it back up and you're good to go.)

    No performance issues, although the seal lubrication in the air can may migrate down, so you might want to lubricate the seal every now and then...and/or store the bike upside down
