Considering Adding Shocks to my 5th Wheel

I have a 2015 Jayco Pinnacle 38FLSA. I am considering adding some shocks to the front and rear suspension. Has anyone done this to their Pinnacle, if what brand?>

I put the Lippert kits on mine. 2 kits, one per axle. Pretty happy with them. You might have to modify the top mount to clear your tires if too wide.

I also put the Lippert kit on mine. They work pretty well at reducing the bounce. If I had to do it over again, Id spend the extra money on the JoyRider system

Just did there joy ride's, what a difference in ride. job was ok to do I had to re-plumb a gray water waste, pipe it was in way of shock bracket. Shocks don't work right if the mounting angle is more than 40 degree's

I have an Eagle 323LKTS that I put JoyRiders on. I originally purchased Lippert shocks after researching them and the JoyRiders thinking I could save a few dollars. Big mistake. Lippert representative gave me the part number, assured me they would work on my rig, but the clearance was only about a quarter of an inch from the tires. I sent them back, and then ordered the JoyRiders. They work great since they are designed to to fit on the inside of the springs instead of between the springs and the tires. The ride is greatly improved, and my wife is happy because she can read while we drive without all the bouncing!

I'd contact Mor-Ryde sunce you have their suspension system already. You want to be sure what ever you add is compatible.

I have an eagle HT and install the LCI shocks on my set up. I have the Morryde CRE 3000 equalizers, too. No issues. Install required slight modification to the brackets that mount to the frame so that I could get a more upright shock orientation. Not a big deal at all; I used a cutoff wheel to trim off one corner of each bracket. Install was easy and the shocks make a big difference. I considered the joyrider setup but it is way more expensive and I saw several videos and posts where the lower mounting bracket broke. If you have about 3 between the inside of the tire and the outside of the frame, you should be good to go. The shocks made a big difference in the ride.
