Caravan Shock Absorbers plus Hanger Kit are a perfect new upgrade.

Caravan Shock Absorbers plus Hanger Kit is built tough to withstand the toughest of conditions. Pair plus brackets, 380mm fully open.

Shock absorber kit, also known as shockys, is used on Jayco, Coromal and all popular caravans in Australia. The caravan shock absorber kit dampens the energy from rough roads that otherwise would travel through your caravan.

Caravan shock absorbers do not carry any load. The popular myth that caravan shock absorbers take some load is false.

If you do not need a shock absorber kit, then you can purchase shock absorbers only at this link.

Caravan Shock Absorber Installation

Download the official guide here.

Your shock absorbers should be installed 90 degrees to your spring travel. In most, this is 15 degrees to vertical.

Install on an axle of 15 degrees to the vertical and about 300mm length or 1/2 open.

We cyclic test every batch of trailer shock absorbers to destruction to support the best quality of your equipment.

Worn parts, parts rubbing together, loose nuts, worn utensils, etc., are all signs of a trailer without a caravan shock absorber.

Why are caravan shock absorbers important for your trailer?

Do you remember Henry Ford? Ah, yes, I thought that name would ring a bell.

Ole Henry never put shock absorbers on his cars until he got sick of the rough ride. He also needed to sell more cars.

A funny thing happened when Henry put shock absorbers on all his cars; he sold and sold and sold more cars.

Henry sold so many cars that all the world's car manufacturers now put shock absorbers on their vehicles.

We reckon your caravan and camper need them too.

    Great product, I find them really easy to install and they made a huge difference to trailer. Very limited bounce and reduced any rattling.

    Hello Daniel, I followed up on your shipping and can advise the following. Your order was received at 10:35 PM on 26th April and was dispatched on the 27th April. Your shock absorber kit is being carried by Fastway as selected. Fastway can take 14 days to delivery to West Australia under the current circumstances. We upgraded the cheaper shock absorbers to the Al-ko Shock absorber as the cheaper version were out of stock. Finally, I have re-emailed your invoice with the tracking details in case you missed it the first time. Thank you for shopping at Couplemate, Best Regards, Steve Wotherspoon
