If you have used this system, did it improve trailer stability and reduce the bounce inside? Was it complicated to install?
I installed the Lippert shocks and after one trip they look like that, hitting tires. I switched to the Joy Rider system. Lippert stated in installation manual that you need to have a minimum 2.5 " space between the tires and the frame I do have 3 " but still they hit tires. I called them and they set should be minimum 4 ", but they ignored when I set that instruction say 2.5 "...go figure .
The Joy ride are more money, but they fit great and shocks are angled more how they should than with the Lippert system.
Here is a Lippert shocks after 500 miles
