Gabriel shock number needed

I will be replacing the axle on my '63 Globtrotter with one from Inland RV this week. Andy advised using Gabriel shocks . Does anyone have a parts / model number for these?

Also realize it should be jacked up using the axle mounting plates but for additional safety can jackstands be placed on the Aframe and near the bumper? I dont't want any harm to me or the 'Trotter when doing this job.

Placing jack stands as you suggest, along with jack stands on the axle mounting plate, are always recommended. A sudden gust of wind can play real havoc.

Your trailer uses vertical shocks that you can get at most any NAPA store.

We do not have the number for the vertical shock.
