0220003 shock replacement

I have a shock that has oil leaking out to the frame. Guessing that is not good. My question is do I replace the one shock or both on that axle, or do I replace all four?

Others may have a different opinion, but I am replacing all four with the Monroe Magnum RV 555003 after finding one of the original shocks leaking.

I like having matched components on the suspension system.

Thank you Steamy1, I was thinking the same thing. If one is bad the others most likely will follow. They are 5 years old and maybe 30,000 miles, but a lot is travel through Louisiana and their great roads. Thanks also for the Monroe part number.

Agree. If this just started a few months after delivery, I'd say just replace the one, but you've got a 2019 (built as early as 8/18 and an unknown placed into service date) putting that trailer at or around the 5 year mark with an estimated number of miles.

Shocks are not overly expensive. I'd replace all 4 with the OEM or equiv.

When replacing your AS shocks, make sure they are the type specifically designed to be horizontally mounted. Most shocks are bi-tube design (tube inside a tube) and will not work if mounted horizontally. You need a shock that is mono-tube design.

It is my understanding that the Monroe Magnum RV 555003 shocks are designed to be mounted horizontally. In a past Forum thread, it was mentioned that it is the shock Colin Hyde uses.

I purchased mine on Amazon for about $25.00 each. The shocks are black and not yellow as pictured on Amazon. Also, made is USA, not China as in the Amazon description.

I installed these last summer on our Bambi, and ordered this set for our 23FB. Just received yesterday. Also installing new brakes while I am at it.

My thoughts also! Thanks for your thoughts!
