Free to A Good Home (Shocks)

I am upgrading my 2006 30' Classic and have replaced the four original shocks. The four shocks are in reasonable condition, based on the force required to extend and collapse the shocks by hand. I had already purchased the new shocks, so I installed the new shocks. These are the original equipment shocks, but there is no name on them. They bear the number 610816. The pin to pin distance on the collapsed shock is 9 3/8 inches. They are available to anyone that will pay the USPS "If it fits, it ships" shipping costs. PM me if you have an interest.

If those shocks are still up for a home, I would be a grateful candidate. My email is, hoboherb@juno.com Thanks. Herb

Hobo herb read your 2013 post about changing shocks on a Classic. Was is a difficult job. Want to change mine but have heard several horror stories about difficulty.

This is not a difficult job on the 2006 Classic. It was a little time consuming, as I removed the wheels (one at a time) to replace the shocks. The nuts were not difficult to remove on my trailer. If your trailer is very old, then you may have to use some penetrating oil on the nuts as a disassembly aid.
