Shock absorber kit is also known as shockys and 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 caravan shock absorbers take some load is false.

Caravan Shock Absorber Installation
Your shock absorbers should be installed 90 degrees to you 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 car manufacturers now put shock absorbers on their cars.
We reckon your caravan and camper needs them too.
