Can Lippert Shock Kit be Installed with Axles on Top of the Springs


I have a 2015 Grand Design 37foot Reflection LSTR 313 travel trail with Dual Lippert #5200 LCI 52-SB-86.5 tandem axles. It has Lippert EQUA Flex equalizers on it. I want to install Lippert #LC281281 Sock Kit on it for 3inch axle tubes. According to the photos of the #5200 Lippert axles, the shock plates would be on the bottom of the axle tube axle tube is mounted on to of the spring. However, your Lippert #LC281281 Shock Kit show the shock plates being mounted on the top side of the spring and the axle tube mounted under the spring. I am confused.......Can I mount the #LC281281 shock mount plate under the spring......Will that work????

I just verified with Lippert that the Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit # LC281281 cannot be installed with the axle on top of the springs.

If you wish to install them you'll need to flip the axles using an Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00.
