    Safety Notice: It’s important you read and follow the tongue & gross towing weight recommendations of all components of your trailer towing set up. This includes the tow vehicle, receiver hitch, tow hitch, ball mount attachment, trailer coupler & the ratings of the trailer you are towing. Never exceed max for any of the components you are using.  If the coupler rating is 8,000 lbs and the hitch is 12,000 lbs, then don’t tow over 8,000 lbs.

    Check out our guide to find out how much drop or rise you need.

    Shocker Air Bumper Hitch Installation Instructions

    The Shocker Air Bag Hitch ball mount is easy to install.  It comes complete with easy-to-understand instructions along with everything you need.  You can download the installation instructions or view the video below and learn How much PSI for my Shocker Air Bumper Hitch?

    Shocker Air Installation: First you must compress the air bag. Do this by depressing the air valve and pushing down on air bag. Once the bag has been compressed, you can install the unit into the receiver tube. Next, install the hitch pin.

    To Set Air: Hook up a trailer using a properly selected ball adaptor and height adjustment in order to a level trailer when loaded. Next, inflate the air bag. As air pressure increases, the unit will rotate lifting the hitch point. Install enough air to lightly compress top bushing or until bump stop clearance is approximately 1/8″.

    Additional Set Up Notes:

    • When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker.
    • Spacer block included and may be required when using 2″ shank (see spacer block install manual below)
    • It is highly recommended that the hitch ball be greased to reduce wear and improve shocker action.
    • DO NOT TIGHTEN THE TOP BOLT, IT IS A LIMITER STOP ONLY.

    Maximum Air Pressure: Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.

    Note: Always use a good hitch ball with the proper recommended tow weight.

    Will the Shocker Air Bumper Hitch work with Equalizer or Weight-Distribution?  If you have an equalizer or weight distribution hitch then it will not. However, check out our Shocker Air Equalizer for weight distribution hitches. If you are just using friction sway bars that hook to a mini ball (such as the shocker sway control arm bar kit), then yes, if you also have one of our sway bar tab mounts such as the combo sway control ball mount attachment.

    Safety Notice: Towing capacity is limited by lowest rated component..
