    One of my winter projects was to put shocks on our T3C. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but I imagine it'll be much less bouncy.

    Looks great, I was thinking about doing the same for my Spen, which has a very similar design.

    D&L Bensinger is having them made up. They're a good piece but when I got mine they were a bit too tall to fit inside the trailer frame, I had to take them to a machine shop to be cut down, they worked fine after that. I told Bensinger about it, check with him when you order to see if others in the batch were the same.

    More questions. Do they just bolt in with the two bolts or did you weld anything? Also how did you determine where to put them front to back are the holes already in the frame? Iv got shocks and special bolts think im going to make up my own brackets. Thanks

    I found some trailer stake pockets in the shed im going to use for mounts just have to weld on a backing plate to hold the back of the bolt. Probably not the same dimensions as the originals but they are 3" tall to fit in the frame. I think your issue with the height was probably just because your floor was smashed down a bit. Mine has the same issue there doesnt seem to be a top to the frame that i can see its just the floor sheetmetal.
