Unlike a coil over set up, which I usually deal with, your shock setup is not carrying the load, just dampening it.

Only reason I mentioned the shock installed height is for anyone else that planned to do this would know.
10-4 my man. It's all good.

I knew exactly where you were coming from.

Two things I will never understand, no shocks on trailers, and not balancing the damn tires.

This would cost manufacturers less than 300 bucks to do and I think most people would pay it.

X2

Are the trailers not balanced on our FR trailers from the factory? Might have to go look. That is just crazy.

I had bought some new take off tires for a F350 dually I had and whipped into a tire shop to get them mounted and he asked me If I wanted them balance too. I"m like a YES. Don't know how many times I've seen some beat up car with "used tires" and the wheel is so out of balance it is hopping off the ground.

Mine are unbalanced. They are 4-5 years old now and look great. I am inclined to leave well enough alone and get all I can out of them.

That being said, if I have any work done to them or put a new set on, they will be balanced.
