Shock Kit for 3-Inch Axle Tube is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good add on 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 bouncing 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No instructions with kit 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.

Asked by: Anonymous
This kit is for each side of a single 3" axle. Number of kits should equal the number of axles mounted to the trailer.

Will this kit work on I beam frame?

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.
Asked by: Anonymous
From the mounting plate to the center of the "shock hole" is 1.25", if that is enough clearance, then it will work.
