Ya I'm trk shock shopping too,still try'n to picture a way to put shocks on our TH,like that idea.

You are probly right about making sure hitch height,and WD adjustments,being first thing to check. IMHO
But if you're shocks are old"like my stock rancho 10yrs old,think it might be time?" or not that old, might be a good idea to change them.

We bought our 2005 Silverado less than 2 years ago. First trip we used it for to tow our pop-up it bounced like crazy so we put new shocks all the way around it. Cant be the shocks I wouldn't think. Our new tt pulled well for the 45 mile trip home except for a 5 mile stretch of new highway that was almost intolerable.

Don't know what suspension you have, but I put shocks on the Alko torsion axles. Forest River Forums - OldCoot's Album: Adding shock absorbers to Alko torsion axles

Hi! We did the same thing )bought a 25RR) about a week ago and have a Harley Trike. Wheel chock should arrive today UPS and will let you know how I make out with it. I drove the trike into the trailer and marked the front tire placement with painters tape. Looked underneath since the bolts go through the floor and it looks clear up to the front tire so I should be good. Trike is 9 ft long.

Thanks Dennis. Interested to know how it goes. We bought Pingel removable chocks that we haven't installed yet. Waiting until we camp without the bike Memorial day weekend. Kind of surprised you're using chocks for a trike though.

Just one heavy duty chock for the front tire with a flip up bar that helps to keep the bike from moving in addition to tie downs. Trike cost so much I don't want to take any chances...
