The fabulous bolt-on shock kit for the Casita high-lift axle. This is a simple bolt-on kit. A no-weld, no-drill solution for adding shock absorbers to Casita Travel trailers.
*The inboard axle plates are made of 1/4″ steel plate with welded reinforcements. The wheel plates are made 3/16″ steel plate. And everything is powder-coated for maximum rust and salt protection.
*All hardware and 2 Monroe 555003 Gas-Magnum RV Shock Absorbers are included in the kit.
MAKE SURE THIS SHOCK KIT WILL WORK FOR YOU:
Casitas come with 1 of 2 axle options.
* The most common option sold from Casita since about 2011 is the DEXTER 3500lb TorFLEX (10deg DOWN.) Castita refers to this as a “high lift” axle.
* The other option is the DEXTER 3500lb TorFLEX (10deg UP.) You may have seen this referred to as a “Standard lift” or “low rise” axle. If you have this, you can use our shock kit but you will need to find and buy Monroe 555002 Gas Magnum shocks. DO NOT INSTALL THE MONROE 555003 SHOCK ON A LOW RISE AXLE.
This Shock kit WILL NOT work if……
* You may also have heard of a 3 inch “lift kit” sold either by Dexter or Perfect Casita. If you have one installed, we cannot support or stand behind your shock kit.
* You have a “weld on” axle. Prior to about 2005, most Dexter axles were welded on. The shock kit will not work with these.
