No harm in towing with the existing pinbox and decide if it's really required. There are so many variables relating to 5th wheel chucking...the biggest being the concrete poured roads themselves. From everything I've read, the addition of a air pinbox isn't a guarantee to eliminate ALL chucking.

Agree Dave, adding shocks to the trailer sure does help, in fact it will just about eliminate it.

I would like to install shocks on my FR cardinal 5th wheel (38FT), I asked the FR dealer if it could be done and he said that he searched out to see and he could not locate the necessary equipment to do this project. I would like to install shocks first to see if it would help smooth out towing. Any suggestions to help me with this?

Here is what I did last year. If something were to happen to make us get another 5er, I'd do it again before taking it on any trip.
