Video Transcript for Toledo Replacement Shock Absorber Installation

Today we'll be taking a look at the Toledo Replacement Shock Absorbers, for Toledo Brake Actuators. Part number, 1844-2. Now with the old shock you can tell that it's worn out by looking at the bushings for one, 'cause they're all cracked and corroded, as well as it really doesn't function the way it should and have the pressure that it should either. It's going to be really spongy and not really work the way they should. Let's go ahead and look at how it operates when it's new. Now us putting pressure on there, you can see how it has a lot of resistance and it isn't going to be really spongy, like it was before, so this will actually actuate those brakes a lot quicker and a lot more efficiently then that burned out shock would. Well the first thing we're going to have to do in the instillation of our shock, is go ahead and remove the shock and the hanger for the receiver that's holding it in place. We're going to lube up, the 2 nuts right here on the bottom, as well as on the other side over here, and the bolt that hangs the rear of the shock here on the back. Now we're going to pull off this last one here and drop down the receiver and the shock.

You can see that shocks completely blown out, but the bushing is completely shot. Now we're going to go ahead and pull out this bolt here, so I'll spray it down and pull it off while we use the same hardware. Put the new one in place. Place the bolt in and tighten it back down. Now let's go ahead and get it back into place. Go ahead and slide our bolt through and then out the other side.

We reattach our nut and tighten it down. Now we'll raise the front back up into position. Go ahead and knock these out a little bit, just to give us a little extra room to work, and lift it up into place. All right with that side back on let's go ahead and put our plates back on the outside, and place all of our nuts back on. And that will do it for the Toledo Replacement Shock Absorbers, for Toledo Brake Actuators. Part number 1844-2. (Video Information:, expert service, lowest prices, fast shipping.

Etrailer had the part for my trailer coupling that was hard for me to find anywhere else. I got it two days earlier than what I paid for in shipping . From now on E Trailer will be my first stop when I need something for my trailers 331342

Product is exactly what I needed to fix my trailer surge brakes from from bucking. The brakes are applied and released too quickly with a worn out shock absorber, the only problem is it was very pricey! 289862

Item fit perfectly on my m101a2 military surplus trailer. Arrived on time and in excellent shape. Once I set up the brake lines I have no doubt this will work perfectly. 90992


Both the jack and the surge brake part are still performing well. I dont have any complaints except that the surge brake part must be painted to prevent rust. Other than that its good.

Ask the Experts about this Toledo Accessories and Parts

  • Replacement Parts for Balcrank 16006 Brake Actuator
  • To replace your surge brakes there are a few things you'll need to know, the first being if you have drum or disc brakes. You can then choose the correct disc or drum brake assembly; you'll need to know your axle capacity and wheel size for either. You will also need to know your bolt flange pattern and drum size if you have drum brakes. You will then need the correct brake actuator and a brake line kit, which is going to be different if you have disc or drum brakes. I have added links...

  • Replacement Shock for Hydraulic Trailer Brake Actuator
  • I believe you are referencing a replacement shock for an actuator and from what you described it does sound like you are in need of a new one. The correct one will be a replacement for your actuator, and I'll list the replacements we carry so you can select the correct one: - Replacement Shock for Titan Model 6 and 10 Brake Actuators # T1242600 - Replacement Shock for Titan Model 20 Brake Actuator # T0778400 - Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 -...

  • Compatibility of Parts for Military Trailer
  • The parts you listed will need to be compatible with what is on your M101A3 military trailer, rather than the trailer itself. For example, the Master Cylinder # 10614 and Replacement Shock Absorber # 1844-2 are for Toledo brake actuators; if that is what you have on your trailer, then these parts will work. The same is true of the Wheel Cylinder - RH # BP17-020 and LH # BP17-030; they are replacements for 10" and 12" single serve brake assemblies manufactured by Dexter, Bendix, Dico,...

  • Surge Brake Actuator Shock Availability
  • The best recommendation I can give you since we don't carry the Gabriel actuators would be to check out the link I attached that will take you to a page that has all of the actuator shocks we carry. On the product pages for each there will be dimensions for each that you can compare to the shock he is trying to replace.

  • Recommended Replacement Shock Absorber For Toledo Brake Actuators
  • We do have a replacement shock absorber for a Toledo brake actuator. I recommend part # 1844-2. The measurement center to center of the mounting holes on this shock is 6-1/4 inches when fully closed and 8-1/4 inches when extended. The bolt holes are 7/16 inch diameter. If these mounting dimensions match the shock you have in your coupler, this replacement shock will work well for you.

  • Replacement Shock for Reliable Brand Actuator on a Mastercraft Boat Trailer
  • One of our replacement shocks might work for your Reliable actuator but we do not carry that particular brand so you would have to go by the measurements. We have several models including # 1844-2. This particular model fits Toledo brand actuators. When fully closed it measures 6-1/4 inches from center of hole to center of hole and when expanded, it measures approximately 8-1/4 inches from center of hole to center of hole.

  • Availability of a Master Cylinder Rebuild Kit for a Toledo Trailer Brake Actuator
  • We have a few different parts for Toledo actuators but not a master cylinder rebuild kit. We have the master cylinder that you referenced, # 10614. We also have a replacement shock, # 1844-2, a pivot bushing, # 1745, and a pivot shaft, # 1829. If your master cylinder is bad then going with the replacement master cylinder you referenced would be the way to go.

  • How to Test the Toledo Actuator Part # 16006
  • Have you tried to tow the trailer to see if the brakes engage? If this is not an option then you will want to first make sure the master cylinder is full of fluid and then use a wooden plank to compress the actuator and see if that engages the brakes. You can also pull the breakaway to see if that engages the brakes but there is not a manual that I am aware of. If the brakes don't engage then you will want to look for leaks or check for broken pieces. We currently offer the following replacement...
