Video Transcript for Lippert Components Trailer Suspension LC283280 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at a Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Gas-Filled Replacement Shock. This heavy duty replacement shock instantly improves your ride. It is available in complete bolt-on kits as well. Now the replacement shock is going to help absorb road shock and vibration for a more comfortable towing experience. One shock per package. It's going to come with the nuts, washers, and rubber grommets necessary for the installation of the replacement shock.

It's going to have that really nice yellow enamel finish that's going to do great job at preventing rust and corrosion and lasting a long time. Now a few measurements to go over with you real quick. When it's compressed, from edge to edge, so basically measuring from the bottom of this washer to the same point on the other side, compressed length is 8.625 inches. When it's extended, and if you do that same measurement, the extended length on this particular shock is 13.5 inches long. Now when you're making your replacement, one end of the shock is going to install into the shock mounting lip on the tie plate. The other end fits into the upper mounting bracket, which is attached to the trailer frame.

Once installed, this unit really does help improve the ride of the trailer. It's going to offer better managed spring movement. It even has the potential to reduce tire wear. The number engraved on the unit is located right here, is 177734. That's going to do it for today's look at the Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Gas-Filled Replacement Shock.

Comments

Curt, I am glad we were able to help! You will simply need to compress the shock until the rubber grommet expands to match the size of the washer.

Ask the Experts about this Lippert Components Accessories and Parts

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Parts for 1970s Camper Frame with Dayton Fayette Axles
  • The Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock - Yellow # LC283280 is 8.625 inches compressed and 13.5 inches fully extended. Your current suspension may extend and retract slightly further but the shocks will be a good replacement based on the actual shock absorbing as long as they will fit your brackets. Unfortunately we don't have any info on your axle or hubs, so to help, I will need to get the bearing numbers printed on the face of your inner and outer bearing of one hub....

  • 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.

  • Recommended Shock Absorber For 5th Wheel Trailer With Tandem Axles
  • For the trailer suspension on your 2003 Montana 5th wheel, the replacements for your Dexter shock absorbers is the Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280. If you want further suspension assistance on your trailer, I recommend the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 for axle spacing 33 inches. If your axle spacing is 35 inches, I recommend the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 7-3/4"...

  • Best Shocks for Tandem Axle 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I am not sure what you mean by double pin shock but we do have shock kits for 5th wheel trailers that are shown on the page I linked for you. A tandem axle 5th wheel trailer with a GVW of only 5000-lbs is pretty rare but trailers are getting lighter these says thanks to the availability of composite materials. Even so, a lightweight tandem axle 5th wheel such as a Jayco Eagle HT still has a GVW rating of almost 10K. You'll want to confirm the weight rating of the trailer's axles themselves...

  • 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...

  • Shock Kit for Travel Trailer
  • We do carry shocks for trailers that could work for your 2003 Kit Road Ranger. I was unable to locate a reference to the product number you mentioned but I recommend taking a look at the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kits, and the right one for you will depend on your axle. Shock Kit # LC281255 is for leaf spring suspension systems with 3,500-lb (2-3/8") axles and Shock Kit # LC281281 is for leaf spring suspension systems with 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb (3") axles. The shocks on these...

  • How to Measure Shock Length to Install Lippert Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit
  • I will be happy to help explain how you would measure a shock such as # LC283280. Basically, you will compress the shock all the way (A) then mark the inner leg where the outer leg stops. Then release compression and measure the stroke (how far the shock moves) (B). Then measure the half way point of the stroke (C). Then you measure the shock length with it compressed to the half way point (Fig. 4A). The measurement cannot exceed the fully extended or compressed lengths. Add 2 inches...

  • Measuring to Determine the Right Size Shock to Use on a Trailer
  • If you are looking to add shocks then measure using the following procedure: Compress the shock all the way (A) then mark the inner leg where the outer leg stops. Then release compression and measure the stroke (how far the shock moves) (B). Then measure the half way point of the stroke (C). Then you measure the shock length with it compressed to the half way point (Fig. 4A). The measurement cannot exceed the fully extended or compressed lengths. Add 2 inches to that last measurement....

  • Replacement Suspension for Small Boat Trailer
  • We do not carry standard automotive type shocks and the Lippert Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280 that you referenced is intended for larger travel trailer suspensions. The trailer axles we offer are intended primarily for leaf spring trailer suspension applications, rather than for suspensions with shocks, but we also do offer axle-less suspension units that can bolt right on to a trailer frame, eliminating the need for an actual axle beam. Given the age of the trailer you may...

  • Shock Kit for a Tandem Axle 1997 Komfort Trailer
  • The shock kits that we have are based off of the axle diameter. If your trailer has 3 inch diameter axles then you can use kit # LC281281. We also have a kit for 2-3/8 inch diameter round axles # LC281255. Going with a full replacement kit will work but the single shocks we have # LC283280 may not be a direct fit to the system that is on your trailer.

  • Compressed Length of Lippert Shock and Where it is Measured
  • We have shock # LC283280 but its compressed length is 8-5/8 inches. We are measuring that from inside washer to inside washer though so if you are measuring differently it is possible that this shock will work. I have linked a video of this shock for you.

  • What is the Threaded Shaft Diameter on Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280
  • The shaft diameter on Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280 is 3/8-inch and the thread pitch is 24 TPI, according to my contact at Lippert Components.

  • 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.

  • Determining Weight Rating of Axles on Trailer
  • Most likely we have parts that will be compatible with your Fayette axles but unfortunately I wasn't able to locate any specific information for the axles on your trailer using the numbers that you found on the tag. If they are round axles you can get a pretty good idea of their capacity based on the diameter. Round axles that have a 1-3/4 inch diameter have a 2,000 pound capacity and 2-3/8 inch diameter axles will have a 3,500 pound capacities. Larger 3 inch diameters can vary between...

  • Single Lippert Trailer Shock and Diameter of Shock # LC283280
  • For a single shock use # LC283280. The larger part of the shock has an outer diameter of 2 inches. The smaller part has an outer diameter of 1-5/8 inches. I used digital calipers to measure and it was right on the money; 2.00 inches and 1.625 inches.

  • Is Lippert Components Replacement Shock Available?
  • We have exactly what you need with the Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280. For the complete kit we also have the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit w/Heavy Duty Oil Shocks # LC281255 which fits 2-3/8" axle tubes. I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check out.

  • Replacement Shocks for 2015 Heartland Bighorn 3685RL 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The suspension kit you referenced is for 5200-7000 lb axles. The Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock - Yellow # LC283280 is rated for those axle sizes so the measurement will need to be taken to confirm the fit. The shock is 8.625" compressed up to 13.5" extended length not including the bushings. I've attached a video to assist and this is the best options we carry for you. If you need to adjust the bracket locations for proper fit, then I recommend # LC281281.

  • Replacement Shock for the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kit for 5.2K - 7K Axle
  • Yes, we do have the replacement shock for the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Kit # LC281281 available as part # LC283280 on our site. This is just the shock and comes in a quantity of one. The current pricing can be found on the product page. If the shock is bent significantly then you may just want to go ahead and replace the shock as this is a suspension component and you want to make sure that the integrity of the material isn't compromised.

  • Installation of Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock LC283280
  • Lippert Components Heavy-Duty Replacement Shock # LC283280 has a nut on each end for securing the shock to the mounts on your trailer suspension. These should be tightened against the outside washers enough to secure the shock to the mounts but not so much that you compress the rubber grommets. It sounds like you might be asking if you could add a second nut inboard of the inside washers to extend the length between the mounting points. Lippert does not recommend this, according to...

  • 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.
