Need some insight on Penske coilover install

Autocrossing & Roadracing - forums.corvetteforum.com
So I'm in the midst of trying to install a new set of Penske 8300 coilovers on my C5z. I've got a couple things I'm trying to make sense of that don't seem quite right to me and hoping you guys can provide some insight as I think something is wrong here.

First I'm a little confused by the location where the remote reservoir connects to the front damper. It seems wrong to me, putting the body of the damper out toward the wheel, but then also forcing me to run the remote line from the now outboard shock body back in toward the car.

Second, on the rear pair I can't seem to find the second adjustment. Obviously I have one on the remote reservoir canister, but there doesn't appear to be any indication of an adjustment anywhere on the damper.

I attached a photo of the coilovers, and I can provide more if needed. The setup hasn't left my spare bedroom as of yet, but now I have a car with dismantled front suspension and some things that just don't appear to be correct to me indicating I may need to send them back.

Thanks for any help.
