Video Transcript for Lippert Components Trailer Suspension LC283271 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Lippert Components black standard replacement shock. This Lippert component shock will instantly improve your ride. It is an oiled filled shock. This is a replacement shock that will help absorb road shock and vibration. Give you a more comfortable towing experience. The part is one shock per package.

It does include the mounting hardware which I've already installed onto the stud mount. It has a nice black enamel finish and the most important thing about it it's the measurement of the compressed length and the extended length. It's in the compressed position right now, so we're going to measure from here to here. Which is the compressed length. We put a ruler on that you can see is right at 7 1/2 inches. If we do the extended length, you pull it out all the way.

Outside all the way in the same from here to here. The extended length on this is going to be right at 12 inches. That should do it for the review on the Lippert Components black standard replacement shock.

I bought 4 shocks. It's hard to get real excited about shocks but the good news is these fit !! Because my trailer's suspension had been modified, there was no place to find the application based upon year and model. I knew the distance between my shock mounts and that they needed to be stem to stem, that's it. I found these online but needed a bit more info on specs so I called. It was very fortunate for me that Jean P. answered. She didn't have access to the specs I needed either and said she'd call the manufacturer for the info and call me right back. For some reason, she couldn't get through to the manufacturer so she walked out to her warehouse, found the part number, opened the box and got the measurements I needed. Wow!! I was delighted and felt secure that these shocks would work and I wouldn't have to return yet another set locally. So this review is not so much about the product but more about etrailer's customer service. OUTSTANDING!! I've since placed another order with them for RV products. 221633

Cathy was able to find the right shock absorber for my 5th wheel by giving her the axle rating and the part number off the Dexter center point. Just installed it and was the correct Lippert replacement for the Made in China shock with no part# that it replaced. 596825

We have a 1960 Dana Hull-Guard Boat Trailer that you cannot find any parts or information for that my husband just refurbished. The last item was a set of shocks. No one has ever heard of a trailer having shocks and springs, but this one does have both. After countless calls to local trailer parts stores in NC, Google led me to etrailer.com. My first search led me to the exact product I was looking for. The description was well detailed with the exact length and specs for the shock, which was exactly what we needed! Once ordered I had shipping/tracking information within 30min and it arrived at my front door in two days, just as promised. I highly recommend etrailer.com and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise. Thank you!!!!! Keri R. in NC 414175

Excellent service on this order. Product was not available when I initially ordered it and etrailer rep called immediately to inform me. Asked if I was willing to wait for a specific period of days and I agreed. They shipped the product on the promise date and it arrived 2 business days later. I have ordered parts several time from etrailer and have never been disappointed. Job well done. 375284

It is hard to tell just how good these shocks are because I added the E-Flex suspension at the same time. But for what it is worth...the ride has really smoothed out with these shocks and E-Flex. 364389

Great service from etrailer.com! They took my order in the afternoon over the phone (I could have done it online as well), and by early evening the same day, I received an email that the order was shipped! That's the kind of service I can relate to! This was listed as Standard Replacement Shock, but it was an exact replica of the one I needed to replace on my Big Horn 5th Wheel. Took less than 5 minutes to install. I would buy it again. 339071

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Recommended Shock Absorbers On 5th Wheel Trailer For More Comfortable Towing Experience
  • Since you are concerned about dips, RRs, and bumps in curves, I recommend using a shock absorber like # LC283271 or # LC281281 on your 5th wheel trailer. You stated the mounting hardware is already in place, so adding shock absorbers should be easy and will allow you a smoother and more comfortable trailer ride. The absorbers will dampen the initial hit and will add support the load so the rest of the trailer is far less impacted by the dip or bump in the road. They will also assist...

  • Measurement of Lippert Components Standard Replacement Shock LC283271
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert and he said the measurement of 12" extended and 7.5" compressed are measured from center of mounting area to center of mounting area.

  • Length of Shocks on Lippert Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit
  • I'm not exactly sure what you are asking; if it is about how to mount the Lippert shocks, the figure you referenced is simply a part of those directions. If you would like to clarify please let me know so I can get a better idea of what you are trying to accomplish.

  • Replacement Shock Recommendation for a Trailer
  • We might have what you need, but you will need to measure the shocks on your trailer first to be certain. The Lippert Standard Shock part # LC283271 might be what you need. It measures 7.5" compressed and 12" extended. If this would fit your trailer you would need to order a quantity of two to replace the shocks on both sides of your trailer. These shocks use vertical posts so that would need to match up to what is on your trailer as well.

  • Replacement Shock for 2004 Keystone Montana Big Sky 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Your Montana 5th wheel trailer will likely use the Lippert Components Standard Replacement Shock - Black Item # LC283271. But to be sure you can remove a shock from the trailer and measure its compressed and extended lengths to determine if it is a match. The replacement has a 7.5" Compressed length; 12" extended length. If your shocks have a 8.625" compressed length; 13.5" extended length then you would need replacement heavy duty shock # LC283280. I have linked videos of both shocks...

  • Replacement Shock Availability for 2004 Fleetwood Advantage AX6 365
  • Most likely you have Lippert shocks on your trailer and the correct replacement would be part # LC283271. This shock measures 7.5 inches compressed and 12 inches extended. Or if the shock is yellow and measures 8.625 inches compressed and 13.5 inches extended you would need the part # LC283280.

  • Shock Absorber Availability for a 1972 Raider Snowmobile
  • I can't find the length of the shock you are replacing, but we have a couple options that may work. The Lippert Components Standard Replacement Shock - Black # LC283271, has a 7.5 inch compressed length and a 12 inch extended length. The Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock - Yellow, # LC283280, has a compressed length of 8.625 inches and an extended length of 13.5 inches. We also have some brake actuator shock absorbers like # T2336200 with a shorter length.

  • Replacement Nev-R-Lube Hub Assembly for 8,000 Pound Axles and Replacement Trailer Shock
  • We have the Nev-R-Lube Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-389-81UC3 that is for 8,000 pound axles. The hub is an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern and uses 9/16 inch drive-in studs that are included. For replacement shocks you're going to want to measure your current ones to make sure you find the correct size. Our Lippert Components Replacement Shock # LC283271 measures 7-1/2 inches when compressed and 12 inches when extended. See the video I've attached for the correct way to measure shocks.

  • Replacement Trailer Shock Absorber for 2004 Jayco Designer 31RLS
  • Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock - Yellow # LC283280 are what you will need as replacement shocks. They are 8.625 inches completely compressed and 13.5 inches completely extended so under weight they likely will be right at your 11 inch measurement. If you need replacement brackets, you can use the kit # LC281281.

  • Determining the Correct Replacement Shock for 2001 Thor Wanderer
  • In order to determine if the Lippert Replacement Shock # LC283271 will fit your 2001 Thor Wanderer, you will need to remove one of its current shocks and take a measurement. If it has a compressed length of 7-1/2" and an extended length of 12", the Lippert shock will fit.

  • Heavy Duty Shackles for Dexter 6K Axle with 1-3/4 Inch Springs
  • We do have a kit that will work with your 6,000 lb axle with your length of springs. The Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension Upgrade Kit # K71-358-00 uses 1/2" thick steel shackle straps though would not be compatible with Never Fail bushings because the kit includes wet bolts cannot be used with Never Fail Bushings. Please keep in mind that for a tandem axle you are going to need two of these kits. I've added a link to a video review of the kit for you to take a look at.

  • How Tight Should the Nuts be for Lippert Shock # LC283271
  • You will tighten the hardware for shock # LC283271 until the rubber grommets have the same diameter as the washers. They are close to the same diameter to begin with so be careful not to overtighten them.

  • Recommended Suspension For 2005 KZ Sportsmen 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Lippert Components Standard Replacement Shock - Black # LC283271 is a good choice for your application if you can line up the mounts. This shock has a 7.5 inch compressed length and 12 inch extended length so your 9 inches will fit but have limited travel. Your other option is to use an equilizer style suspension system like the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 7-3/4" Equalizers # K71-653-00. This system replaces your equilizer on your tandem axle...

  • Shocks Needed for Bass Boat Trailer with 3,500 lb Axles
  • The Lippert Components Shock # LC283271 is a replacement part. Although it works well, if you don't have the mounting hardware already, this shock alone will do you no good. Instead what you want is a whole shock kit. Since you have 3,500 lb axles, which are typically 2-3/8" round, you will need the kit # LC281255. This includes the shocks and the mounting hardware. This kit has a weight capacity right at the 3,500 lb mark.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Lippert Components Replacement Shock?
  • I reached out to my tech contact at Lippert and the Standard Replacement Shock - Black # LC283271 doesn't have a rated capacity but is designed only for use on 2-3/8 inch diameter axles. That axle size is the 3,500 lb axle, so seeing as they are designed for 2 shocks per axle, the closest I can give you to a capacity is approximately 1,750 lbs but shocks aren't weight bearing so that is why they aren't rated for a capacity. Any axle above the 3,500 lbs would require the Lippert Components...

  • Possible Replacement Shock for Spartan Toy Hauler
  • We might have what you need, but you will need to measure the shocks on your trailer first to be certain. The Lippert Standard Shock part # LC283271 might be what you need. It measures 7.5" compressed and 12" extended. If this would fit your trailer you would need to order a quantity of four to replace the shocks on both sides of your trailer. These shocks use vertical posts so that would need to match up to what is on your trailer as well.
