axles and shock absorbers

Can shock absorbers be added to Dexter axles for an even smoother ride???

Not sure Dexter sells shocks.
Argosy and A$ trailer shocks are a special animal. Since they are mounted horizontal.
My Dexter axles have shock mounts.
Bought the shocks from Inland RV.

Last I heard you have to order Dexters with shock mounting brackets if you want them. They can also be welded on after the fact.

Thanks for the responses! I think I should have been a little more specific.We have a '98 25 ft. Excella Classic that has new axles. Because they are torsion, I understand shock absorbers are not necessary. Do you think it is still better to have them or not necessary. We still think we have a bit of a rough ride, but we were on some really bad highways. Thoughts?

What is the tire pressure?
What tires are you running?
Is your hitch set up right?
That's a lot of truck you are using.
