More inclined:

softer initial dampening
more progressive dampening
more lateral traction
makes the handling more forgiving
may be better on high-bite tracks, slows down the handling
makes it easier to drive

Less Inclined:

Harder dampening
less lateral traction
makes the car more responsive
usually better suited on technical tracks

So when you are saying 'Inclined' You are referring to the shocks 'laying down'?

so more vertical is more incined, and more horizontal is less inclined?
