I will be installing the 4000 as an upgrade just need to find the time.

If we were full time probably would but for 5 or 6 trips a year and usually only couple hours drive not really smart money. Heck, on the fence about upgrading the equalizer due to $ .

I talked to LCI again today about the shock mounts being welded from the factory. I had a different person today, Katie , and she is sending me the mounts from the addon kit that the others have been telling me can't get. I have to say LCI sometimes does do right.
When they arrive will remove the welded ones, may just mount on the inboard side while doing the wet bolts. If not a great improvement will reconsider the 4000

We went from the Lippert equivalent of the 3000 to the 4000. Night and day difference! The Lippert cushioned equalizer never seemed to make a difference. With the 4000 we only feel the trailer hit bumps 2% of the time--like never. Note: we had a MORryde pin box with both systems. Part of the time with the 4000 the microwave plate is still in place after a drive while it never was before the 4000. Our next new trailer will get a 4000 or IS immediately.

I didn't realize how much difference between my 3000's that came on our 5er and the 4000. Our rig also came with the shock mounts but with the axles flipped no body has been able to get me a shock that fits. Not Jayco or LCI, Monroe won't give me a clue either.
Did you do both 4000 & Joyrider at same time ?

Thanks but I had that info way back. Without moving to Hole for highest ground clearance which I don't need any more height , 13'2" now. I have the longer 026 and with the rubber mounts you can't install without removing spring from shackles then you have very little compression travel & will bottom out which is worse than no shock absorber. The shorter just the opposite. Like I said LCI sending me new mounts FREE.

I did the 026s on a old Eagle we had, but it had been raised all the way up. I never did it again because after less than 2 years they were worn out.
I do like the look of the Joyrider's kit. Lowers the the lower mount for lot more travel. A lot more choices in that style of mount also. But for those $$ I would do Trailair pinbox
