Upgrade your trailer or 5th wheel suspension with bolt-on, heavy-duty axle shock kits that better manage spring movement so you enjoy a smoother ride and reduced tire wear. Kits include two heavy-duty suspension shocks with all mounting hardware.
I bought 2 sets of these for my travel trailer. There are
no instructions included in the box. And I can't find any
instructions... online other than a youtube video recording
which was helpful but not complete. Both kits also were
missing 2 of the self-tapping screws and 2 washers. The kit
includes 2 brackets that require 5 self-tapping screws and
washers each, but only 8 screws and washers came with each kit.
I installed two sets on my 5th Wheel trailer and it was a vast improvement over not having any shocks at all. There was less bounc...ing around over rough highways, which gave a better ride in my tow vehicle. Overall very pleased with the results. I only gave 4 stars because the instructions that came with the shocks were vague and inaccurate. The shock measurements were all wrong and with much discussion with a friend we finally figured it out and installed the shocks. The next day I went on to manufacturers website (Lippert) and found that you can download the correct instructions from them. It would have been much easier and less time if there was a note in the box directing the purchaser to the manufacturer for the instructions. Other than that I'm very pleased with the product.
These are rated for 5K to 8K axles. The mounting hole is 3" on center from the flat plate. Mounting bolts are included.

I have to move my Shocks from the outside of the frame to the inside I have a I beam frame so the distance is the same both sides. I have a spacing from the frame to the center of the shock hole is 2 1/2 Will this frame mount work.
From the mounting plate to the center of the "shock hole" is 1.25", if that is enough clearance, then it will work.
