Do hydraulic snubbers have to be installed with their reservoir in any particular orientation?

No, hydraulic snubbers do not have to be installed in any specific orientation. They can be in any position because it is a pressurized reservoir. Note: Previous generation hydraulic snubbers did require a reservoir to be oriented vertically, but the new style does not have that same limitation.
