Video Transcript for Review of Titan Replacement Shock Absorber For Titan Or Dico Model 60 Brake Actuator - T2336200

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a brief look at this replacement shock absorber for the Titan Model 60 brake actuators. This is going to replace the shock absorber for the Titan Model 60 brake actuators. And this is also going to fit the Dico Model 60 brake actuators as well. Now, just to give you some overall dimensions, gonna pull out my ruler here.

Looking at the collapsed length, I'm not gonna be able to show you the extended length. But looking at the collapse length, lining up my ruler center to center here, we are sitting right at almost five inches as you can see there, center to center. So, that's gonna be the collapsed length. And on the extended length, this is gonna be sitting right at about 6 1/4 inches. So, if you are needing a replacement shock absorber for your Titan or Dico Model 60 brake actuator, this is going to be an exact replacement from Titan, so you can trust that it's going to work with your Model 60 brake actuators.

Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Replaces shock absorber for Dexter Model 60 brake actuators.


Fit well on my 20 yr old trailex alum car trailer. This part along with a new master cylinder solved the shuttering when applying brakes. The hydraulic channels in the master cyl are tiny and corrosion can block the channels.


Just finished putting brakes, rims and new tires on my boat trailer. Etrailer had everything I needed to get the Job done. I received my tires and wheels only to discover I was sent 3-14" tires and 1-15". I quickly called and talked with Courtney and she was very apologetic and made sure the right tire and rim were sent out the same day. I received it 5 days later and was able to complete the job. I will definitely use etrailer again in the future, it was a pleasure dealing with them. Here is a picture of my project.


Fits and works perfectly. Rebuilt entire coupler and trailer springs


Found this shock online here at etrailer which I had trouble finding anywhere else with any confidence. The listing on helped me identify the exact shock I needed for my 25 year old Surge unit. Fit right, works great! Thanks etrailer! Gary


I had to enlarge one bore from 7/16 diameter to 1/2 to fit my surge brake model, Titan Aero 7500, but I knew that when I bought it and it wasn't difficult to drill out. Other than that, I think this will work for my surge brake setup.


Exactly what I needed


Working well. No more banging master cylinder when I stop.


Ordered this shock absorber for the surge breaks on my car dolley. When I was towing my car on the dolley, the surge breaks would 'chuck' (swiftly engaging and disengaging causing the dolley and car to quickly stop / start as the breaks went on and off) The shock fit exactly and seems to have fixed the problem. That takes a lot of the worry about towing a car off my shoulders, and that is a good thing!!

I ordered the part on a Tuesday and it arrived here in Florida, after crossing half the country, on Friday morning. Great job!



It has been a year since I wrote this review. A year and 5000 miles. The shock absorber continues to do its job as designed. Anyone with this chucking problem should take a look at this cure. Easy to do and worth the effort


It did the job.


Item appeared to have been installed / used though listed as new. The part’s appearance does not matter but getting long service life does


part is correct and is now installed on trailer hitch

Dave E.


still working fine good quality


Etrailer transaction was easy and delivery of the shock and master cylinder was fast. Both products installed without any mods and my boat trailer is a dream to tow now.


There was a loud clunk and you could feel it when using the surge brakes on our ski boat trailer. The master cylinder was badly pitted. Now the braking is smooth and responsive.


Parts match perfectly. Parts came 2 days early.


thanks it finally made it safe


easy install on hydraulic brake actuator for 6000 lb boat/trailer. trailer was slamming when stopping/starting


I was pleased with the brake lines and trailer shock absorber. I received what was shown. They came in a timely manner, was what I needed and was reasonably priced. Thank you. I am installing them today. Will be back to order more parts in the future.
Pat B.


This was exactly what I needed to fix the tongue on my trailer. It was sliding in and out about three inches, causing a bang when a started and stopped. The trailer is for a 2000 Bayliner boat. This shock absorber matched the old one perfectly. And, it only took about ten minutes to replace.
Perfect part and delivered very quickly.


Product came well packaged, and was identical to the shock being replaced easy install, no more clanking when starting and stopping ( also replaced master cylinder)


Easy install


This part fit perfectly on my 2009 boat trailer replacing the broken part and solving a problem.


Replaced the shock in my Titan 60 actuator assembly along with the actuator itself. Less expensive and easier than replacing the whole Titan 60. This part took all or 5 min.


Brakes were rebuilt with etrailer parts and are working great. Thanks // etrailer.


Direct replacement and easy installation. Thank you for the speedy shipment too!


Part functions as it should. Actuator no longer slams out on acceleration.

  • Are Surge Actuator Shocks Normally Hard to Push In and Pull Out
    Shocks like the Replacement Shock Absorber part # T2336200 that you referenced are normally pretty hard to push in and pull out so if that is what you are experiencing then yes it would seem like yours is working normally.

  • Troubleshooting Surge Brakes Locking Up When Moving Forward
    Surge brakes use a hydraulic actuator to push fluid to the cylinder piston to activate the brake shoes on drum brakes or brake pads on disc brakes. This pressure should only be applied when weight is pushing against the hitch ball, so no pressure when moving forward and pulling the trailer. With brakes dragging and locking up when going forward, there has to be something mechanically incorrect in the system like a sticking piston in the wheel cylinder keeping pressure on the brake shoes...

  • Replacing the Shock Absorber on a Titan Model 60 Actuator
    The current shock absorber on your Titan Model 60 actuator won't be under any kind of pressure so it is simply a matter of taking the actuator apart to get at the absorber. The Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 may need to be slightly compressed when you fit it into the actuator but this is something that can be done by hand. It should be fully expanded when you receive it so you won't have to worry about expanding it for the installation.

  • Right Side Hydraulic Trailer Brake Locks Up After Braking
    You may be getting air in the lines or have a wheel cylinder that needs to be replaced. It is also possible that you have the wrong side brake assembly on that right side but since it is only an issue after braking this is probably not the case. There could be something in the brake assembly itself that is getting stuck. I recommend pulling the wheel and drum off to inspect the operation of the brakes, check for any foreign objects that might be causing the malfunction. If the wheel cylinder...

  • Bolt Torque Specs For Installing Titan # T2336200 Replacement Shock Absorber into a Brake Actuator
    According to my contact at Titan, there is no torque spec for those bolts. The 'rule of thumb' I was given is that the bolts should be tightened enough so that when the actuator is fully extended, you should be able to get a .002 feeler gauge in between the slide and the outer assembly. In other words, tighten the bolt so it's snug but NOT so tight that it compresses the housing, or you'll turn the actuator into a coupler.

  • Is Tongue on Titan Replacement Shock Absorber # T2336200 Supposed to Return After Bleeding Brakes
    A shock absorber's tongue like on the Titan Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 referenced in your question will not normally return on its own after bleeding the brakes. Typically you will have to manually pull it back out. It's possible that it will sometimes slide back out slowly, like you had happen previously, but that is not an indication of it being pressurized or not.

  • Minimum and Maximum Length of Titan Shock Absorber # T2336200
    I contacted our representative at Titan about the Titan Shock Absorber, part # T2336200. He informed me that from the center of the bushing hole to center of bushing hole when collapsed the shock measures approximately 4.930 inches. When the shock is fully extended, from center of bushing hole to center of bushing hole it measures approximately 6.250 inches.

  • My Surge Brakes Are Activating When I Back Up My Trailer - What Can I Do?
    Hello Gregg, I think I can help shed some light on what is going on. Basically, there are two ways to stop surge brakes from actuating when backing up the trailer. The first and most popular way to do this is to use a surge brake actuator with a reverse lockout. For example, the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator# DX56FR has an electric lockout. The solenoid is wired to the reverse light circuit on the tow vehicle. This way when the vehicle is put in reverse, the actuator will be locked...

  • Suggested Replacements for Titan Coupler and Brake Calipers
    As it looks like you have a Titan model 60 actuator, we definitely have replacements for you. If you wanted to replace the whole actuator, the Titan Zinc-Plated Brake Actuator w/ Electric Lockout - Disc - Multi-Fit Ball - Bolt On - 6,000 lbs # T4745720 will be a direct bolt on replacement. However, if you just wanted to replacement master cylinder and shock, you will need the # T4820000 and # T2336200. For the actual brakes, you have 2 options. If you wanted replace the whole caliper,...

  • Hydraulic Trailer Brakes Lock Up Moving Forward Using Titan Brake Actuator
    Disc brake actuators like # T4747200 do not have a check valve in them or a device to keep pressure in the system like drum brake actuators do. On a drum brake actuator there is a check valve inside the master cylinder that regulates the amount of pressure that goes back to the brakes. The wheel cylinders on hydraulic drum brakes will hold pressure as well. If the master cylinder and wheel cylinders (if the trailer has drum brakes) are fine then you could have some air in the system or...

  • How to Tell if Shock Absorber on Titan Model 60 Hydraulic Brake Trailer Coupler Needs Replacement
    According to Dexter Axle, who purchased Titan a few years back there really isn't a definitive method to bench test the shock absorber used in the Titan Model 60 coupler. If you can easily move the shock by hand, it's worn to the point where it should be replaced. It should take a significant amount of force to move the shock. Should it need replacing, the # T2336200 replacement shock would be the proper replacement.

  • Replacement Master Cylinder and Shock Recommendation for Trailer with Model 60 Actuator
    The Replacement Master Cylinder Assembly part # T4820000 is designed for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators like what you have and is for disc brakes. Then for a replacement shock you'd need the part # T2336200 and you'd be set.

  • Why Are My Calipers Dragging On My Load Rite Trailer?
    If your brake calipers are dragging, this is indicating that your caliper is not properly aligned with the rotor. This is caused by a bent caliper mounting bracket, or some warped rotors and pads. To fix this, you'll need to inspect the alignment between the rotor and the pad, and if it turns out to be a bent bracket simply replace as necessary. If you're able to send me the specific brake kit you have or some pictures of your brakes, I would be happy to see if we have some replacement...

  • Troubleshooting EZ Loadr Boat Trailer Brake Issues
    It sounds like the fact your brakes are locking and releasing is what will cause the bounce and porpoising you are describing. It sounds to me like your surge brake actuator is sticking and then releasing and then doing so again and again as you slow down. This could be from a shock like the Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 not working correctly, a wheel cylinder/brake caliper issue if that is only happening on one side, or a master cylinder issue...

  • Replacement Shock for Worn Out One on a Titan Model 60 Trailer Coupler
    It does indeed sound like the shock is shot. The shock basically prevents the moving part of the coupler from banging around when stopping and accelerating. If you can easily move the coupler in and out by hand then it is for sure the shock. For the model 60 actuators use shock # T2336200. You mentioned adjusting the trailer brakes but make sure you have not adjusted them too far. There should be a slight but constant drag of the pads on the drum when the wheel is turned. You might also...

  • Troubleshooting Hydraulic Trailer Brakes Initially Locking Up After Coming to a Stop
    It sounds like the shock absorber might be the issue here. The shock absorber, like part # T2336200 for Dexter Model 60 Brake Actuators, is designed to "push" the actuator back into a naturally opened position but it sounds like your coupler is staying compressed until your tow vehicle pulls it back open, which is why your trailer brakes are still activated until that initial "pull" you're feeling after a stop. Your trailer coupler should be very difficult to compress by hand (typically...

  • What Does Shock Absorber on Titan Model 60 Surge Brake Actuator Do?
    The Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 for your Titan Model 60 Surge Brake Actuator ensures smooth operation of the brakes when you apply the brakes of your tow vehicle by easing the trailer forward. Without a shock the actuator would apply the brakes very sporadically and cause a less than pleasant towing experience.

  • Hydraulic Trailer Drum Brakes Get Hot and Actuator Will Not Return After Storing Trailer for Winter
    It is possible that if there is a leak then you have air trapped in the system causing some problems. There could also be some corrosion somewhere that is not allowing the actuator to return to its normal state after being pushed in. Since the brakes are getting so hot, you will want to look at the drums too to see if there is any warping or color changes that can affect the performance. You can take them to a brake shop to be inspected. Testing the system with fluid is a good way to...

  • How Tight Should Bolts that Secure Replacement Shock Absorber for Dexter Model 60 Be
    Hey Robert, according to my contact at Titan, there is no torque spec for those bolts that secure the part # T2336200. The 'rule of thumb' I was given is that the bolts should be tightened enough so that when the actuator is fully extended, you should be able to get a .002 feeler gauge in between the slide and the outer assembly. In other words, tighten the bolt so it's snug but NOT so tight that it compresses the housing, or you'll turn the actuator into a coupler.
