I didn't always get things right the first time... I had to move the link arms after the first attempt because they leaned too far forward to the starter. So I shifted those back a little to keep the shock in a mostly vertical position and have good clearance through its complete arc of travel.
I used a padded clamp to compress the shock to its full down position and then safety wired the linkage together. When I mount the seat I want to make sure I mount it low but have 1/4" of clearance so the seat doesn't bang the fender if I bottom out the shock.
