As with anything, the shock useage choice is yours.
You could, if you wish, take the axle to a welder and have the brackets installed to match their placement on the old axle.
We recommend that they be installed, since they are a motion restrictor.
There is no proof that they hurt anything, but there is proof that shocks that they can and do help. We do not go along with the size of the trailer has anything to do with the choice.
