I have the Alko torsion axles and it is an easy install, but very laborious as far as fabricating the brackets, removing wheels, backing plate bolts, etc. Shocks were about $340. If you have metal fabrication available, it should not be too difficult. I designed and built mine in about 30-40 hrs start to finish. I have a new design that does not require removal of the backing plate bolts and fabricating (welding) the brackets. Neither design requires any welding on the trailer frame. The trailer mounts bolt to the 2 x 4 tubing and not the frame, so the frame is not altered in any way.
