Got a droopy suspension shock on your Escapade trailer? Here are a couple of things to try first:
1) Make sure your air lines are holding air. A bad o-ring or fitting at the shock may cause air to leak from one shock but not the other.
2) Check the tightness of the bolt that holds the lower shock mount to the trailing swing arm. If this bolt is too tight, it will prevent the shock from rebounding, causing one side to sag. To fix, completely remove the bolt and apply a light coating of anti-seize compound on the inside of the lower shock mount surface. Reinsert bolt and apply LockTite to threads. Do not overtighten bolt. Shock should be able to move freely without binding.
Now...if that doesn't solve your problem and you need a fresh shock, we have them.
Installation is straightforward. Peel back carpet at upper shock housing to expose mounting nut. Remove air hose fitting, inspecting O-rings on air hose for dirt or cracks. Remove bottom shock bolt from trailing arm and pull out at an angle to create tension on upper shock bolt and nut. Remove upper shock nut and pull shock out. Replace with new shock in reverse order.
