I have an off road caravan that is fitted with ind. suspension. The only shocks that I would use are Koni. I would suggest speaking to the experts regarding your setup. The people I use are toperformance on 03 9873 1722, they provide really sound advice.

Good luck, John

It's an old arguement, but I would never tow a decent trailer or van without shocks- just like i wouldnt drive a car without shockies either. The trick is to find a shocker that fits your van or trailer and it will often have to be mounted on a fair angle- I recently fitted shocks to a mates almost brand new 18foot van and it made a HUGE difference to stability-
Used new Monroe pump-ups (air-lifters)from an Escort panelvan which we chose after going thru specs in the catalogue- works a treat and quite affordable.
Koni are very good but very expensive- not really cost effective for most people... ie: how many miles would your rig do?
Good luck
