• The shock at the right is positioned too flat to work.
  • The operating stroke is far too short in this angle.
  • The lower shock mount should be on the shackle side of the axle where the movement is greater.
  • In this position, the hydraulic fluid will foam and leak.
  • This is all of the space available on standard RV suspension systems for an shock absorber placement.
  • This is the reason only 15% of RV trailers are equipped with shock absorbers.

Fitting shock absorbers on RV suspensions has been a big problem

Only 15% of all RV trailers are equipped with shock absorbers.  All other highway vehicles have shocks, why not RVs?

Inadequate clearance within the suspension system,  require shocks to be placed in a position where they cannot function.

RV OEMs and suspension designers gave up long ago.
