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.

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″.

  • 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.

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