Are shocks needed?

I believe I have seen articles about torsion axles commenting that shock absorbers are not needed. That the torsion axle can be properly and safely used with out shocks ??? Anyone else seen these articles ???

You pointed out that shocks limit bouncing.

That's exactly why Airstream uses them.

Do they stop bouncing? No.

But they do contribute to reducing the bounce.
